Wealth inequality in the USA

This video has left me in shock!
Although American population is considered as “wealthy and sufficient”, with better access to health services and better capabilities to obtain goods and services, the truth is that poverty is immense and the middle class, as stable and wide as it appears to be, it doesn’t possess the economic wealth that many times is attributed to it, because frequently they live just above their possibilities and with very tight budget.

This video is quite terrifying and shows how enormous the poverty line is, and how the lower class is almost undistinguishable from the middle one, leaving a super powerful rich minority. In other words, there is too much money, but in very few hands. A really sad and scary video that leaves me with this question: if the most powerful country in the world is in such bad condition, how other less fortunate countries would be?
