Net Worth = Net Negative over Past Ten Years

Take household net worth, then remove the effects of inflation and population growth to get real net worth per capita.

And this doesn't communicate the widening disparity between the haves and have nots (i.e. the bottom 90% have MUCH less net worth now in real terms than in the recent past).
