    Puts me in mind of some sci-fi novel I read around 20 years or so ago, where the hyper-wealthy lived in enclosed bubble cities and the rest of everyone else live outside in shantytowns out in the toxic wastelands :O

    Agreed, not news but still somehow the implications of it seem to be lost on the vast majority of people in this country and on this site.

    The disparity of wealth (by Gini coefficient) in the US has reached the same neighborhood as Mexico and Russia, but no one seems too concerned.
