Really Rich and Really Really Rich

I have to thank the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) again for a great graphic. Below is the difference between the top 0.1% and the top 1%. Yes, these are the richest people in the world. Each are experiencing tremendous advantages just by being wealthy to begin with, but as illustrated, there are rich people (getting 20 times richer) and super duper rich people (getting 70 times richer). The baseline is the rest of us.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
