Looking Up

“…the number of people in households that bring in more than $100,000 also rose from 12 percent to 24 percent. There was no increase in the percentage of people in households making less than $30,000. So the entire ‘decline’ of the middle class came from people moving up the income ladder. For married couples, median incomes have grown in inflation-adjusted dollars by 25 percent since 1979.” – Stephen Rose, WashingtonPost.com

Another gem:

“…54 percent of households had no credit card debt after paying their monthly bill and that the average household credit card debt was just over $2,300.”
