Share This article The wealthiest 1% of Americans own almost as much wealth as the bottom 80% of the population.
But their wealth has grown in the past decade, from $1.2 trillion in 2012 to $1 trillion in 2015, according to the report.
And as the wealth gap grows, so too does the perception of financial inequality.
In 2015, 51% of adults surveyed said that they were “very or somewhat concerned” about financial inequality, up from 36% in 2014.
Meanwhile, a whopping 60% of people surveyed said they were dissatisfied with the way their financial circumstances were working out.
In 2016, more than half of adults (52%) reported that they are “very concerned” or “somewhat concerned” that their financial situation is “not working out for them.”
The report finds that the majority of Americans — 58% — believe that they and their families are “living paycheck to paycheck” today.
And only 6% of them are not.
A growing number of Americans are struggling to keep up with rising costs, as well as rising debt levels.
According to the National Economic Council, the average debt load among Americans in 2020 is $16,000.
Meanwhile the median annual household income for Americans is just over $56,000 — up about $600 from last year.
This has prompted some to call for more social programs to help those in need, while some have advocated for the creation of a single payer healthcare system.
The economic outlook for the United States is still very bleak.
According the National Association of Manufacturers, unemployment is still at 8.5%, and the jobless rate is still higher than it was in 2016.
The U.S. is now the second-most expensive economy in the world to live in, after only the United Kingdom.
With rising income inequality and the continued economic decline, Americans are now paying a higher price for their rising living standards.
A rising economic tide, however, could be lifting Americans out of poverty.
The National Economic Commission on Women has published a report that found that in 2018, women are making a smaller share of income than men, on average, but still earn significantly more than their male counterparts.
The report found that women earned 66% of all the income earned by women in 2018.
This is up from the previous year, when women earned 54% of income.
And the wage gap between women and men widened, from 11% in 2018 to 15% in 2019.
With the economy slowly recovering, and the unemployment rate at a near-record low, Americans should be happy with their incomes and the way they are spending them.
However, as more Americans reach the tipping point of their financial situations, it is important to look beyond the paycheck to see what is really happening behind the scenes.
How much does wealth really grow in the U.K.?
The report from the National Advisory Committee on Financial Inequality (NACFI) found that over the past five years, the amount of wealth held by the richest one percent of Americans has increased by almost $700 billion.
This includes the $1,000 billion that has been invested in private equity firms over the same period.
Over the past 20 years, these funds have been used to acquire properties worth more than $4 billion.
The biggest private equity fund, Pershing Square, bought a home in the United Arab Emirates, for $3.8 billion.
Meanwhile private equity firm Carlyle bought a luxury apartment in London, for an undisclosed sum, for £300 million.
Meanwhile American Express bought a new $300 million yacht, The Grand Cayman, for the tune of $7 million.
All in all, the NACFI report estimates that the richest 0.1% of U.B.I. households hold more than two-thirds of all wealth in the country.
In addition to the $800 billion that the NACAFI has estimated, the wealth of these wealthy Americans has grown at an average rate of nearly 25% per year over the last three decades.
In 2019, the richest 20% of households owned a staggering $11.9 trillion, or nearly 15% of wealth in America.
And of the 1.2 billion people in the richest 10% of America, about a quarter own less than $5 billion.
