It's no surprise that the division between the super wealthy and everyone else in the U.S. is tremendous. I've seen reports saying how the top 1% earn 17-25% of the nation's total income. My question is: is such a large division of wealth beneficial or harmful to the country as a whole? Do the super rich help the economy of the U.S. by giving back to it? Or is their accumulated riches a detriment to the common people?
