Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

They call America the land of opportunity, but few would question the notion that it is also the land of contrasts.

Mint.com reports that all you need to do is look at the statistics compiled on a regular basis by the Department of Labor, Census Bureau and other government institutions to see the stark differences between the country’s top and bottom earners.

While the top 1% of American households holds 34.6% of all privately-held wealth, for example, the bottom 80% (made up of salary workers) holds 14.9%.

For more statistics on income, wealth and debt distribution in America, take a look at our infographic, created in partnership with OnlineSchools.org.
