Imagine a nation with a population of 100 people and a money supply of $100. Now imagine if one of those hundred people had $90. That’s 1% of the people with 90% of the wealth.
That’s basically what we have in the United States.
Imagine now that among our 100, there’s a middle class—it’s twenty people, 20% of the population. They have 30-cents each. That means the 20% of the middle class have 6% of the aggregate wealth. Those 20 people have an aggregate of $6.
That leaves 79 people dividing the remaining 4% wealth. They get, at best, a nickel each.
That’s what income disparity is.
It means the vast majority of the nation can’t afford to buy things.
