Income inequality is increasing throughout the United States, right? Examining before-tax income differences, it would certainly appear so. Taking a look at after-tax income, though, we find a different result. After-tax income inequality has actually decreased over the last decade, with the bottom fifth income bracket growing the most while the top 1 percent of earners have found their income shrink.
