I spotted a few articles today that describe the United States as having two economies.  Here are the links:

Jeff Cox, in this CNBC article entitled, “Ray Dalio: Middle class needs ‘wealth transfers’ to bridge income gap,” brings the problem into focus by highlighting this quote:

“The polarity in economics and living standards is contributing to greater political polarity,” Dalio wrote. “It is also leading to reduced trust and confidence in government, financial institutions, and the media, which is at or near 35-year lows.”
