About
In 21st century America, the top 0.1 percent of the wealth distribution have walked away with the big prizes even while the bottom 90 percent have lost ground. What’s left of the American Dream has taken refuge in the 9.9 percent that lies just below the tip of extreme wealth. Collectively, the members of this group control more than half of the wealth in the country - and they are doing whatever it takes to hang on to their piece of the action in an increasingly unjust system.

With wit and incisiveness, Matthew Stewart shows how the 9.9 percent is transforming an abundant economy into a source of misery and calls for a regrounding of our culture and politics on a foundation closer to the original promise of America.
