Do bear in mind that this distribution of income has gotten increasingly unbalanced since the early 1970's.

In fact, the broad swathe of the population has had a declining standard of living by real terms measurements over that time period.

The illusion of unlimited credit at negligible interest rates was doubly seductive in this context.
