I suspect Professor and author, Robert Reich earns much more than $1 million and I do not begruge the executives of a $10 billion originazation for that level of earnings. The cartoon is informative but like most distribution analysis it focuses on the top and all be ignores the plight of the bottom 50% of the population where the real story is. I'd like to see a cartoon about income and wealth which shows how half the country gradually lost 70% of their net wealth between 2005 and 2010. Perhaps there could be a cartoon about how most of the $1.2 trillion in tax expenditures are given to the top 10%. Check out the wealth distribution table at TaxNetWealth.com.
