The Almighty Dollar: Distribution of Income by Religion

Infographic: GOOD Magazine and Column Five

Does believing in God help make you wealthy? If so, can a particular religion make you wealthier than others? GOOD Magazine in collaboration with Column Five takes a look at America's wealthiest religions:

It's no secret that the distribution of wealth is inequitable in the United States across racial, regional, and socio-economic groups. But there is a distinct variance among and within America's faiths as well. This transparency takes a look at the income levels of America's major religious groups, as compared to the average U.S. income distribution.

Apparently, it's good to be Hindu (43% earning more than $100,000) and Jewish (46%).

Hindu in the U.S. means motel owner with a no interest loans and free grants from the gov'ment to build or buy the motel in the first place.
So, DUH.... Hindu has the highest wealth rates.

The phrase "distribution of wealth" bugs me. It reminds me of an online acquaintance, years ago, who used to state with perfect sincerity that janitors deserved to make the same salaries as brain surgeons, or vice versa.
