  •  It's not "wealth" period (5+ / 0-)

    the sums extracted from each paycheck are meager amounts of money.  I'd love to trade "wealth" with Bloomberg if he thinks it is such.

      ... its income. The wealth comes from the share of the economic growth made possible, in part, by the economic stability that it helps to provide ...

      ... and the split of that economic growth between wage earners and profit recipients.

      Over the past forty years, the share has tilted to profit recipients, and over the past decade, most wage earners haven't got diddly from the growth, with it all going to profit recipients.

      I'm not 100% sure whether Bloomberg is deliberately lying or whether he himself does not understand the difference between income and wealth.
