Sometimes finding the story in the data is the hardest part. This week I started all over the road, looking at presidents in office and creating a grouping on the political party. When I did that I noticed the highs and lows when I create a trend, and with a quick google I figured out what major events happened during those years. Even still, the percentage of wealth wasn’t really telling me anything… everyone know that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. That’s when I started to look at the year over year change and the magnitude of effect in the bottom 90% vs the Top 10% gave me a compelling story (IMHO). Enjoy.
