Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez, Gabriel Zucman — Economic growth in the US: A tale of two countries

The rise of economic inequality is one of today’s most hotly debated issues. But a disconnect between the different data sets used to measure and understand inequality makes it hard to address important economic and policy questions. In this column, the authors highlight the findings from their attempt to create inequality statistics for the US that overcome the limitations of existing data by creating distributional national accounts.

It has been hilarious to see the Phoenix Woman-Mercury Rising blog collapse and fail and see this website fade into the fringes of nothingness as well. Unhinged maggots like the people who roam these kinds of sites deserve to be ignored and have all traces of their existence cleansed from the public record. Nice to see you blithering idiots still floating around eating your own feces.
