That chart is a little controversial and contested. Here are some lower estimates by pro-corporate neoliberal websites, whi ch have different figures but illustrate the same thing.

oh damn our CEO's rate of pay relative to the average employee is better than Venezuela's huh? The average CEO in Venezuela should be making a few hundred billion at this point though :-DDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Despite an unfair balance in pay between workers and bosses I'd still rather live here than any of those countries except for maybe Italy, and I only say that because I'm not sure how mafia controlled that place is still. Most of South Africa and Mexico are kind of a mess civilly. Germany France and Britain would probably be alright if it were a rural area. Japan seems like a cool place to visit but I don't think you'd ever get to a point where you weren't just some American weeaboo trash living there.

Japan's CEOs are paid much less, but the working culture is still intense there. Europe is overall much better because they mandate vacations, and their vacations are basically as long as the summer breaks you had when you were a kid.

I don't buy into the narrative that extreme income inequality is required for progress. I think that's the propaganda capitalists, royalists, and land owners have fostered on is to prevent us from questioning their privilege. If there were more regular Joe's whi could afford a real education, you would get more innovations than as it is, where only the very rich can afford to get a Masters at a great school without entering crippling debt. Debt that prevents them from taking entrepreneurial risks developing new inventions and products.

I also don't buy into the argument work is inherently good. Most jobs suck, just bring in the robots. More jobs aren't the end all either, because what if those jobs were slave jobs? Would they still be good?Economists who only talk about GDP and the unemployment rate are tools of the establishment.

I have come to love AOC. Watching her call out the banks for their bailouts and social media messaging is always fun.
