Hoarding is a subtype of obsessive-compulsive disorder. (OCD) 10-25% of Americans hoard.
"In the United States at the end of 2001, 10% of the population owned 71% of the wealth and the top 1% owned 38%. On the other hand, the bottom 40% owned less than 1% of the nation's wealth.
According to this 2006 study by the Federal Reserve System, from 1989 to 2004, the distribution in the United States had been changing with indications there was a greater concentration of wealth held by the top 10% and top 1% of the population." footnote1
"In addition, wealth is unequally distributed with the wealthiest 25% of US households owning 87% ($54.2 trillion, in 2009) of the wealth in the United States." footnote2
Hoarding is unhealthy to the economy. It causes depressions and recessions.
Hoarding has disinherited 40 to 75% Americans of the American dream. Hoarding and hoarders need a sin tax like cigarettes, alcohol, and sugar.
By the way, the 40 to 75% will eventually take back the American dream.
