The Demise Of The American Dream (In 2 Charts)

Tyler Durden's picture

Presented with little comment aside to note that when 'work is punished' the demise of 'opportunity' will continue...

 

The painful reality in America: for increasingly more it is now more lucrative - in the form of actual disposable income - to sit, do nothing, and collect various welfare entitlements, than to work.

And that trend appears to be accelerating as more and more men drop out of the workforce...

and the demise of opportunity continues unabated...

 

... "life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement" regardless of social class or circumstances of birth (or amount of stock ownership).
