Most people would probably define the haves as simply not being in poverty and getting by decently. I do not think this poll accurately displays how people view themselves. People do not honestly believe there is no difference between the ultrarich and themselves, but they see that most people are not unlike them.

Lets put that into context:

That is the equivalent of two thirds of the population of the United Kingdom living below the poverty line

Or put more simply still – every two Brits out of 3 living in poverty!

Now that is something any civilised society must get grip on and seek to reduce before it leads to serious social problems!

Without a clear vision, it will sputter and dissolve.

I agree about regulations, like reinstating the Glass Stegall act. However, protesting corporate greed while continuing to buy what the malefactors are selling is doomed to failure.

Most of us may feel there is no gap between rich and poor because envision that it is more of a spectrum. The vanishing middle class is not apparent to enough people, yet. I think we need to focus on market power, and how to give consumers the voice they should have in a competitive market. Otherwise, we’ll just be protesting ourselves out of our own jobs.

If too many americans still think they are part of the haves, it has to be because they’re too happy with their plasma screen tvs, dishwashers, washerdryers, that they’d rather call themselves haves. No one has to focus on self definition in this country, just hte american dream, and so the poll is flawed, even though the 1% continue to gather all the income, and spend it on yachts, upper east side penthouses, and other goods bible belters don’t concern themselves with. The best sign I saw at occupy the cbot was “wake me when the american dream.”

In 1950, wealth concentration in the US was comparable to other countries.

Besides the growing financialization, focusing on Wall Street’s excess (e.g., bonus payouts) is appropriate: the last two years saw the largest NYC bonus totals, outside of the record breaking 3-year stretch from 2005-2007. See charts below for details:
