Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Sheldon Danziger was quoted in an AP article about the widening income gap between America's richest and poorest.

The income gap is at an all-time high, with the top-earning 20% of Americans taking home 49.4% of America's income. Danziger stated that while the "U.S. has developed policies to combat poverty, it has trouble addressing ever-widening income inequality — even with a growing federal deficit and previous warnings by former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan about soaring executive pay."
