    The same thing that would happen if they were getting richer. They'd lock their money away in investments, bonds, stocks, etc. None of which create jobs in any demonstratable form.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    If it were more static (the percentages that is), it would be indication of economic mobility. Poor people could get rich and rich people could become poor. That's the thing about economic mobility and why they top top try to prevent it. How many bankers ended up on the street after they ran a system they knew couldn't be supported and eventually collapsed? It's not a "static" group yet; but it's becoming more and more static. The days where people can pull themselves up by the bootstraps and get wealthy through innovation and hard work are coming to a close.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    fail-if someone who makes more than they spend cannot increase their wealth through investment it means the entire system has collapsed

    and most "millionaires" are first generation millionaires. massive income taxes and the death tax is what keeps the uber rich secure
