The rich came out of the crisis: the income of the richest 1 percent grew by 31.4 percent between 2009 and 2012, which is the remaining 99 percent only by 0.4 percent
The gap between the arms and rich goes everywhere. At the beginning, the development in the US, when the neoliberal ideology began to enforce the neoliberal ideology under Prasident Reagan. For 30 years, the gap has always been gross, the tax gifts from Bush to the rich you have even deepened. But the financial crisis ultimately contributed to this. Meanwhile, the 10 percent of households with the highest income take a share of 50.4 percent of all income – more than ever since 1917, when the first time statistics were raised to income.

As the Economist Emmanuel Saez shows the University of California, the recovery from the financial crisis on a highest unequal manner. Between 2009 and 20122, the average real income per household grew by 6 percent, most strongest at 4.6 percent in 2012. Pay for income payments, pensions, rent, dividends and capital gains.
But you do not look at the average, but also the social classes, then crass differences are clear: the income of the richest 1% grew by 31.4 percent between 2009 and 2012, which is the remaining 99 percent only by 0.4 percent. The richest 1% deleted 95 percent of income growth. In 2012, the ropes of the richest 1% took a proud 19.6 percent, in the rest of the population, the increase was only 1 percent. The income of the richest 1% was in 2012 at Uber 394.000 US dollars before taxes. Also within the layer of the richest 10% drifts the scissors apart. The income of the richest 1 percent shot into the high, during the richest 10-1% only very maby.
With this developing under Prasident Obama progressing development, the scissors continues to go on, according to Saez this will remain so despite small reforms. The richest 1 percent initially increased mostly by the falling borse with 36 percent between 2007 and 2009 most wired most. With the remaining 99 percent it was "only" 11.6 percent. While the income of the latter is far from a recovery, the richest her losses have made practically making.
The share of the income of the richest percentile on the total income has risen relatively constantly since the 1980s with short crushes such as 2001 or 2008, which was not always so, writes Saez. Before the 1. World War was the proportion of the richest percentil income at approximately 18 percent and rose to 24 percent by the end of the 1920s. After the Second World War, growing leans and higher taxes contributed to a now almost unimaginable equality. In the spatements of the 1960s, the proportion of the richest was only 9 percent of the total income to climb to 23.5 percent until 2007. The richest people play, Saez, "a central role in the evolution of inequality in the course of the 20. Century". The coarse part of the income of the richest Americans until 1970 was in capital incomes, since the rise of wealth owes the top "Explosion of the top holders"
According to the World Top Income Database in the US, the share of the richest percentile of total income was 22.46 percent. In Germany, the gap has not grown so much and lies the proportion of richest at 12.71 percent, which has an extra income of more than 376.Have 000 euros. In Sweden, the share of 8.01 percent, in Italy at 9.38, in the UK at 13.88, in Switzerland at 10.54 or in Australia at 9.17 percent..
