New report shows how wealth of billionaires is growing in America

In a new report, The Brookings Institution found that wealth of the top 1 percent of Americans has increased by about $2 trillion since 1990, a nearly 20 percent increase.

That is an increase of about $50 billion per year.

The report also found that nearly 70 percent of all income gains from the financial crisis have gone to the top 0.1 percent of earners.

The Brookings report was issued on Monday and is available here.
