Income discrepancies seem to be growing again, as 93% of all income gains during 2010 went to the top 1% of earners, a new study says. Income share for the top 1% reached a post-1929 peak of 23.5% in 2007, tumbled to 18.1% by 2009, but in 2010 bounced up to 19.7%. It's likely "this uneven recovery has continued in 2011 as the stock market has continued to recover."
