I wonder where the income cutoff is between being in the 1% and the 99%.
As Hamilton Nolan at Gawker put it, "'Sure, it's an objectively large sum of money,' they say. 'But it is far smaller after I spend it.'"
According to a blog on the WSJ "An annual salary above $506,000 puts you in the top 1%, while you need to make less than $2,500 a year to be in the bottom 1%"
I took it from http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2011/10/19/what-percent-are-you/ which was also posted Oct last year. Not sure their source. And yes, at that point it's not that different. Fun to play with the calculator though!
