Those exceptional gains ran their course by the early 1970s, and productivity growth receded to a normal, modest pace. Market income for the bottom 80% of earners increased by 16%, while market income for the 81st to 99th percentiles increased by 56%, and for the top 1% market income increased 174%: As the growth in before-tax income reveals, government transfers has helped to (somewhat) narrow the disparity in market income growth.

But now that human capital is scarcer than machines, widespread education has become the secret to growth." Standards of living have increased for everyone—as have incomes for that matter—and mobility remains robust in America. I will start with the basics about widening inequality, drawing heavily on a trove of data generated by the Federal Reserve's triennial Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF), the latest of which was conducted in 2013 and published last month. 4 The SCF is broadly consistent with other data that show widening wealth and income inequality over the past several decades, but I am employing the SCF because it offers the added advantage of specific detail on income, wealth, and debt for each of 6,000 households surveyed. 5 This detail from family balance sheets provides a glimpse of the relative access to the four sources of opportunity I will discuss.

This amounts to a transfer of $1.8 trillion from labor to capital in 2012 alone and brings the US labor share to its 1920s level. Beset by the negative impacts of inequality, many Republican constituents are rejecting these establishment candidates in favor of outsiders with more populist messages. Conversely, how frequently do the children of doctors and lawyers fail to enter high status careers upon completion of their schooling? In the United States, the first $250,000 of wealth would be exempt from the tax.

The [new] research, conducted by the charity Oxfam, found that the wealth of the poorest half of the world’s population – 3.6 billion people – has fallen by 41 per cent, or a trillion US dollars, since 2010. It has more to do with remarkably high compensation and incomes. In a purely capitalist mode of production (i.e. where professional and labor organizations cannot limit the number of workers) the workers wages will not be controlled by these organizations, or by the employer, but rather by the market.

Economic historian Angus Maddison (2001), on the basis of GDP per capita, has estimated that the richest countries were about three times richer than the poorest countries in 1820. The superrich have grabbed the bulk of the past three decades' gains. In the late 1980s, a virtual cottage industry sprang up among liberal economists and journalists.

The conditions of the early part of the century have changed.

We need more investment in public goods; better corporate governance, antitrust and anti-discrimination laws; a better regulated financial system; stronger workers’ rights; and more progressive tax and transfer policies. Now is not the time for wonky policy solutions, as the media meatheads are calling for. Can government change your framing so as to induce you to compare yourself to a different group and thus be happier?
