Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The graph you show and the data you link are average/mean figures. We are interested in the median, i.e., the income figure that 50% have more than and 50% have less than. One would expect it to be substantially lower than the average income.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
