0.01 % translates to 1/100 of one percent. or more accurately 1 of 10,000.
Using this and comparing it to the lower 90 % of the income scale seems somewhat rediculous. Comparing 90 of 100 to 1 0f 10,000 seems completely idiotic. although this further supports your logic by tenfold. One has to consider that perhaps the original Solzhenitsyn statement was lost on the editing desk with the misplacing of a decimal. Whereas 90% of 270,000,000 is 243,000,000, 0.01% of 270,000,000 translates to 27,000. Apples compared to Elephants, more or less. Logic or illogic aside, was it not capitalism that made this country what it is. You just cannot buy bread with statistical data, but you can or cannot with the bottom line.

Oh jeez, make that fourth line read 'original Bob Herbert statement'.
Got a little confused in switching pages to check spelling.
