Half of the top 1% of earners in the U.S. don’t think they’re in the top 1%, a study found
Michael Moore isn’t the only one-percenter who’s in denial.
According to a new study from HNW Inc, half of the top 1% of earners don’t think they’re in the top 1%. (Note to one-percenters: if your household income is more than $340,000, you’re a one-percenter).
Some of the one percenters even side with the Occupiers when it comes to anger at Wall Street. More than two thirds of the one-percenters believe the wealth gap is a problem, and many of them don’t like Wall Street.
More than half support prosecution of executives responsible for the financial crisis and support more regulation of financial instutions.
