Things aren’t so bad

From the NY Times:

With disparities in wealth greater than at any time since the Gilded Age, the gap is widening between the highly affluent — who find themselves behind the velvet ropes of today’s economy — and everyone else.

 

You might think the article is about how the wealthy can afford better health care or something like that.

Nope. It’s about cruise line companies offering luxury experiences for a higher price removed from the masses on their boats.

What’s not addressed in the article: We’re doing pretty good if the masses can afford to take cruises. A generation ago they couldn’t.
