> Three charts, not merely one. Besides the income class numbers, there'll
be a chart of real incomes of the poorest 20%, middle 20%, and richest 5%, and a chart of the number of hours of work it'd take the average worker to buy the S&P 500 from 1890-1999 (i.e. S&P/average hourly manufacturing wage, as at <http://www.panix.com/~dhenwood/StoxVsWage.html>).
