Perceptions of Inequality in the US

18 Aug

Great clip from PBS News Hour (and posted at Boing Boing) about inequality and Americans’ perceptions about how wealth is distributed in the U.S.
There is a link to the pie charts used in the video. I suggest asking your students the same question of the study before discussing wealth stratification.
