Matt Korostoff has published a powerful infographic to illustrate the obscenity of wealth inequality: “Jeff [Bezos] is so wealthy, that it is quite literally unimaginable. We rarely see wealth inequality represented to scale. This is part of the reason Americans consistently under-estimatethe relative wealth of the super rich. Every 10 pixels you scroll is $5 million. OK, we’re coming up on the end now. Lol, just kidding, we’re about ⅓ of the way. Keep scrolling though, there’s more to see. … No single human needs or deserves this much wealth.” Reading about it doesn’t do it justice; you should click through to scroll (and scroll, and scroll) for yourself.
