@familyunequal that's exactly what occurred to me
@BrankoMilan @AlanReynoldsEcn that group grows over time (call them "boomers"), then you get misleading declines in market income
@BrankoMilan @AlanReynoldsEcn but the problem is bigger than that--if you include people w/ no market income (call them "elderly") and...
.@BrankoMilan not sure what's wrong about @AlanReynoldsEcn piece--say more? Clearly case that IRS data says nothing abt median hh inc trends
RT @AlanReynoldsEcn: @swinshi I took your advice but found it difficult to follow until I came across this graph http://t.co/xie9zkfvkL http://t.co/gEAnupo1Rd
.@MarkARKleiman Ive written LOTS of times that mobility is major problem even tho it's not worsening. I funded major papers at Pew saying so
Sputter @MarkARKleiman: @swinshi You want self-parody? Try try the denial that inequality and immobility are serious and worsening problems.
@JoshuaMound cant speak for anyone but me, but yes, 70th percentile of Americans is "well off" (ie, >95th percentile of world income)
@JoshuaMound you aren't refuting the latest Pew results when you show other estimates that aren't disaggregated by party.
@JoshuaMound that last one wasn't broken out by party. This one hard to judge w/o knowing how big/poor "disadvantaged Dem" group is
SelfParody: @MarkARKleiman: @swinshi So let me ask the question again: Why does money make Republicans less capable of dealing with reality?
@MarkARKleiman there is no evidence it is falling, so strike one for smart-Dem facts.
Everyone already read @AlanReynoldsEcn on why cant use Piketty-Saez data to argue stagnation? Good. http://t.co/dlDsSykkW7
@lenburman point definitely taken on growth. Will HOH status really affect low-income single parents though, given how few end up owing tax?
RT @NewAmericaEd: Watch live: @kevincarey1 and @audreywatters discuss Kevin's new book, #endofcollege: http://t.co/MC1ZLTX5qY http://t.co/zPsaiRxRsL
.@MarkARKleiman help me out with another thing: what's the matter with Kansas?
Are we not supposed to use work email for personal use? Asking for a tech-challenged-not-at-all-unethical friend.
@charleshhughes though they ask the opposite too-- >harm than good
.@MarkARKleiman so poor Dems and all Repubs are dumber than those smarty well-off Dems. Got it.
RT @MarkARKleiman: @swinshi Or: Among Democrats, higher incomes correlate with more accurate perceptions. But money just makes Republicans dumber.
