offoffwallstreet:

A rather remarkable editorial on the Assange-Ecuador story from the Washington Post today:

There is one potential check on Mr. Correa’s ambitions. The U.S. “empire” he professes to despise happens to grant Ecuador (which uses the dollar as its currency) special trade preferences that allow…

Rockstar-statistician Hans Rosling has previously explained why the washing machine sparked the reading revolution and how 200 countries changed over 200 years. In this shortest TED talk ever given, Rosling uses a stack of stones to explain how global population growth will affect wealth distribution in the future and what will happen to the gap between the rich and the poor.

Adding salt to the wounds of the new lost generation:

According to analysis by the Pew Research Center released Monday, younger Americans have been left behind as the oldest generation has seen wealth surge since the mid-1980s.
While it’s typical for older generations to hold more wealth than younger ones who’ve had less time to save, the gap between the two age groups has widened rapidly.
In 1984, households headed by people age 65 and older were worth just 10 times the median net worth of households headed bypeople 35 and younger.
But now that gap has widened to 47-to-one, marking the largest wealth gap ever recorded between the two age groups.


Attn: Mom, Dad, and the people who gave birth to pretty much everyone I regularly hang out with.
