The Great Divergence: Book summary and reviews of The Great Divergence by Timothy Noah
The Great Divergence Summary
For the past three decades, America has steadily become a nation of haves and have-nots. Our incomes are increasingly drastically unequal: the top 1% of Americans collect almost 20% of the nation's income - more than double their share in 1973. We have less equality of income than Venezuela, Kenya, or Yemen.
