Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think those in the top 15% of annual incomes have benefited. The next decile is teetering and everyone below the 75th has to feel like they have lost ground. There are a lot of people, like myself, who have tasted six figure incomes, but not to the end of their careers. Economically, they/we have fallen from grace. I am glad to have what I have, but many are bitter about lost opportunities and are misdirected as to how this happened and who is to blame. I had to wait until retirement to have the time to figure out something about what has happened, but it wasn't easy.
