sorry, vidur. I did Switzerland from the database. I plugged in 1939-1945. Top 10% income share.
1939- 32.94
1943- 32.59
1945- 33.24

this is cool.

So do y'all think that I/you can be one of these people if I/we work hard, pray to the right god, and get lucky*?

Naw, me neither. Lucky is enough to achieve this.

*lucky includes "luck" of being born from a certain limited subset of loin
