There is a very interesting graph representing the perception of people in the US on the topic of perceived wealth distribution. The contrast between what is the “actual” wealth distribution and what is the “perceived” and “preferred” wealth distribution is remarkable.
There are more graphs and information on the topic of income inequality that are as equally interesting here.
One of the other telling graphs relates to the income tax rate over time. Specifically the periods perceived as decades of high growth also have significantly higher tax rates.
