You may have been wondering: How does it really break down between the 99 percent and the 1 percent?

Slate has some great answers, including these conclusions:

One thing is inarguably true: The 99 percent don’t have 99 percent of anything, money-wise, in the United States.... Inequality has increased in the past decade, leaving the 99 percent with smaller and smaller proportions of income and wealth. And it has many economists, public policy wonks, and, well, protesters very, very worried.

This is, I think, the genius of the Occupy movement. With one phrase—"We are the 99 percent"—it has focused people on something problematic, incontrovertible, and until now pretty much ignored.
