Here's a really interesting...

...interactive website that deals with income growth since 1979.

For example, it says that on average, incomes in the state of Michigan grew 8.9% between 1979 and 2007. And yet, while incomes of the top 1% shot up, incomes of the bottom 99% actually fell. This is what I was getting at with my post last week on "trickle-down" economics.

Check out the website for yourself; look up your state or region of the country.
