Interesting Facts

Here are a few interesting facts:

– The richest 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all American households combined
– The effective tax rate on the nation’s richest people has fallen by about half in the last 20 years
– Roughly 45 million Americans spend a third of their post tax income on food — and still run out monthly
– And one in four kids goes to bed hungry at least some of the time.

(Thanks to this info from Mark Bittman at the New York Times.)

It’s time we asked ourselves whether Tulane wants to perpetuate this situation, or change it.
