Actual wealth distribution versus what people think it is. (via)
This reminded me of a survey the Washington Post did a while ago which compared the ethnic distribution of the USA to what different ethnic groups thought it was – everyone got that horribly wrong too. Quick test: what percent of the population is White, Black, and Asian? Highlight the next line for the answer:
White: 75% Black: 12% Asian: 3.6% (2000 Census)
