Due to income inequality Average and Median are two vastly different concepts when talking about economics. Any study that only looks at the "average american" or something like that is going to come out with very skewed results. The "average american" is of a higher class than the "median american" would be.

@Mailliw What's utterly bullshit is I've taken econ courses and they directly teach you not to do this shit because data is only as good as the method you selected. Not that I have any ringing endorsements for capitalist-econ classes but even in this system they have no excuse.
