For example, OWS created "Bloomberg Bucks" (http://occupywallstreet.net/bloombergbucks ) to illustrate what it means to be 200,000 times wealthier than the average American family. What suggestions do you have for how to visualize wealth inequality?

Right now the extremely wealthy are being allowed to hold private parties for the U.S. Senators and Representatives at the Republican Convention in Tampa, Florida. This picture was taken recently and an article about the flagrant use of corporate influence by lobbies skirting the laws against this collusion by the rich. http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/david-koch-dines-with-senator-in-tampa

"Occupy George" has some great visualizations - and they stamp them right on to money!

What does it matter if most are fooled into thinking that by taxing you more as you start to make more will do anything other than separate the already rich from the working poor?
