It's not just the top 1% who are hoarding all the wealth in America -- it's the top 20%, including many people who don't even realize they are among the most privileged class in our nation. Many liberals, especially in Seattle, are blind to their contributions to income inequality. And it's time for those folks to own up and put their money where their mouths are. That's according to Richard Reeves, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute and former director of strategy to the UK’s Deputy Prime Minister. Richard Reeves' new book is titled, "Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is a Problem, and What to Do about It."
