THINK: Wealth Disparity in the U.S.

Yesterday, people were sharing all kinds of great resources on the Cortina Facebook group, so I thought we might put them on the blog for the world to see.

Check out this great video about the mis-perceptions we have about wealth inequality in our country. It lays out the the real numbers, the ideal numbers, and the perceived numbers to compare them with some great visual representations. (Chuch shared this one!)

Here is an interactive map of income and rent for every neighborhood in the U.S. (Elizabeth shared this one!)

What does this mean for us? How can we be more aware of the reality in order to think more creatively about solutions?
