    Don't know why you're surprised by that. I'd have put you as a confirmed 1% er.
    Did some research on a few states recently using IRS returns by zip. There were a good deal more returns above $200k. than I had imagined. Granted, they were joint filings, but 10-12% still surprised me.

    Sunday’s general election in Sweden extended two trends that are now prominent across Western Europe: the rise of right-wing populist parties and the decline of center-left parties.

    This is a crucial difference between US and EU immigration.


    September 15, 2018
    Education levels of U.S. immigrants are on the rise

    The estimated 44 million immigrants in the United States are better educated than ever before, due in part to rising levels of schooling in many of their home countries and an influx of high-skilled workers to the U.S. in recent years, especially from Asia.
