Income Disparity in America: An Economic Infographic

by Brian Rogel on November 11, 2011 · 50 comments

A chart/infographic I created and posted on my personal blog. It displays the income disparity in America in relation to historical capital gains tax rates. It also points out a few major economic events that have happened between 1916 and today.

The capital gains tax and income disparity infographic.

Nice job on the infographic. I think the major problem is government spending too much, but this chart shows how those that get the most capital gains have an unfair advantage of sorts.

Can you learn anything in an online course? I signed up for one and find it just like studying on your own, but forced to learn extraneous matter that is of no interest and totally unstimulating due to lack of human contact. Of course the goal of most education is the degree, not the knowledge, so if it helps students to get a degree cheaply and easily online education serves a purpose.

What the Rich & Powerful in America forget when it comes to paying Taxes is the Stan Lee quote " With great power,comes great responsibility ."

He had many ripple effects besides just the owners and players. Between the government’s cut on taxes and the arena employees who got put out of work during the lockout, it was near devastating to many. Here is a decent info graphic we came across that quantifies some of the numbers.

it's really easy to find statistics about how much globalisation has increased living standards, and its also easy to find how income disparity has increased in various places… but what I'm missing from my essay is HOW, you know?

You can never expect the economic growth to be stable. There are ups and downs. It's not just about the government but also the playful market. This then, will help us learn that we all should study the market before we invest.

The LED in LED Signs stands for Light Emitting Diodes. They are essentially tiny LED light bulbs that are manufactured and installed on a board side by side. The size and distance of these LED Sign Bulbs determines the clarity and viewing distance of your LED Sign. Having a LED Sign or LED Sign board means instantaneous advertising at the stroke of the keyboard. There are outdoor LED signs, indoor LED signs, led sign boards, LED Message Centers (whatever you want to call them). Other than the multitude of application of led signs themselves, there are many options in the marketplace today for the LED in the signage.
