Le Figaro.fr - OECD On Income Inequality

The OECD has published a new report on income inequality in developed nations.  This report may complement President Obama's speech on income inequality that he plans to give today in Osawatomie, Kansas.

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report (still working my way through it) seems to focus on the income differences between the top 10 percent and the bottom 10 percent.  As many of us already know, the real income inequality is between the top one percent and the rest of us -- the 99-percent.

The OECD offers an overview (with graph) of its findings on income inequality in the news release, "Society: Governments must tackle record gap between rich and poor, says OECD."

The Le Figaro.fr article, "Les inégalités se creusent dans les pays riches," gives us a synopsis of the OECD report.

Cheyvialle, Anne. "Les inégalités se creusent dans les pays riches."  Le Figaro.fr 6 December, 2011: online edition.
