* In the United States, the richest 1 percent of households owns 38 percent of all wealth.
* The top 5 percent own more than half of all wealth.
* The richest 10 percent of families own about 85 percent of all outstanding stocks. They own about 85 percent of all financial securities, 90 percent of all business assets.
It really bothers me when a small group of people is singled out. I hope these uncertain financial times are not detrimental to these minorities. They have feelings, too, you know.
