    the "country's" stakeholders are getting much, much richer.  And most of the rest of the country-- the vast majority of the people and stakeholders in this country-- are getting poorer.

    We need a new vocabulary for discussing income inequality so that we can express large-scale economic indicators while simultaneously showing that those "national" or "country" indicators are manipulated by, and benefit, an extremely reduced number of actors and factors.  

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
