The woes of the average Joe: America is getting richer, but most voters can’t feel it

“Voters give (most politicians in this century especially) little credit for America getting richer because, by and large, (the vast majority) haven’t felt it.

Not only is the recovery subdued by historical standards, but widening inequality means that:

the median household (in the middle of the income range)

is doing far worse than

the mean (total income divided by the number of households).”
