What Wars Are Made Of —

Appalling Greed

and corporate war profiteering

Richest 400 Americans

Average $270.5 Million Incomes,

Pay Almost Nothing in Taxes


In 2008, with millions of Americans out of work, losing their homes and health care, and schools, libraries, and other government services being cut, IRS data show, the top 400 paid only 18.1 percent of their total incomes in federal income tax. The top 400 in 1955 paid 51.2 percent of their total incomes in tax.

The top 400 today, after taking inflation into account, make more than 20 times the incomes of America’s top 400 a half-century ago.

Where is the Shame?
