It seems to me that while we do experience significant inequality today, it's not as extreme as it was in the earlier parts of American History with the prevalence slavery and the economic power of large trading companies and wealthy European families (at least in the more stable and developed areas). If you are seeing growing inequality would you be considering our current American society to have started before that period, sometime back in European history?

Wow, that's interesting. I wasn't aware of that measurement system. It talks about the indebtedness of households, is this a modern phenomenon? It occurs to me that mentions of debt in ancient days seem to be mostly for business purposes or very wealthy people
