I have yet to read this book, but from the description:
// While other economic historians base their accounts on American wealth, Peter Lindert and Jeffrey Williamson focus instead on income--and the result is a bold reassessment of the American economic experience.\\
This is patently absurd, as true wealth can never be measured by income when considering the rich and the super-rich, it must focus on wealth and assets!
