When the Fed hold interest rates at zero, people save less, and investors invest. Rich people invest the most and are better at doing so, so stocks are flooded with dollars because thats the only place you can't loose money with inflation at its current rate. Also, numbers can be artistically reported depending on how inflation, or GDP, or interest, or CPI is calculated. Focus on the access of goods those in top income brackets have, then those at the bottom. Poor people access planes, internet, phones, cars, etc. No rich person had those in most of history, but because entrepreneurs competed and property rights were enforced, supply and demand allocated those resources in a very effective manner.
