Rich-Poor Comfort Divide Surges To 2-Month Highs

Tyler Durden's picture

Following Fed Governor Tarullo's comments this week on central bank policies and the recovery benefiting high-income earners disproportionately - potentially damaging the "nation's democratic heritage", we thought it ironic that this week's Bloomberg Comfort Index data showed that the rich (high incomes) just got a whole lot more comfortable and the poor (low incomes) got a whole lot less comfortable. In fact, the rich-poor comfort divide jumped back to 2-month highs.

This is the first major divergence since early December.


Though, we suspect, once the "rich" look at their brokerage statements this weekend things might change a little...

Everyone will feel a lot better when the rich/poor "asset gap" narrows greatly when the balloon in asset prices pops.
