In a McKinsey publication income inequality is analyzed.
You can read about the Gini Coefficient and find data in the CIA Handbook or in other sources.
The most obvious questions are:
a. Is the income inequality in the US? (http://www.mckinsey.com/global-themes/employment-and-growth/income-inequality-why-so-many-households-are-not-advancing)
b. Is the wealth well distributed in the US?
c. How do you compare the US with other countries?
d. Is it true that we are poorer than former generations?
