What if your income grew at same rate as 1 percenters?

After the last few years, it could be easy to be displeased with your current financial situation. But what if?

What if your income grew at the same rate as the 1 percenters? Now, thanks to Mother Jones, you don’t have to wonder — you can find out.

They’ve come up with a handy calculator that will show you what you’d be making today if all Americans’ income grew at the same rate over the past 50 years.

For example, if you currently make $30,000 a year, you’d be making $91,509 now. And if you make $60,000 now, that would translate to an incredible $183,019. Just imagine what you’d be able to do with all of that extra income.
