The real wealth gap in America isn't between the 99 percent and the 1 percent. It's between the 0.00001 percent and everybody else.
A new study from the Institute for Policy Studies left-leaning think tank says the richest 400 Americans have a combined net worth of $2.34 trillion — equal to that of the bottom 61 percent of the U.S. population, or about 194 million people.
Even among the top 400 there's a great divide. The richest 20 billionaires in America have a combined net worth of $732 billion. That's more than the bottom half of the American population, or 152 million people.
The report said the distribution of wealth in America no longer resembles a pyramid — it's more like Seattle's Space Needle.
