The Atlantic “The New American Aristocracy”

In the latest of The Atlantic’s series of visual essays, writer Matthew Stewart argues, 9.9% of the population comprises America’s new aristocracy, which often “takes wealth out of productive activities and invests it in walls.”

“But this group of people is rich in more than mere money, and its constancy poses an insidious threat to the promise of American democracy.”

Produced, designed, and directed in-house at The Atlantic by Jackie Lay.
