For all the ranting about the top 1% by the Economic Policy Institute and others, a US Berkeley study by Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman on The Distribution of US Wealth, Capital Income and Returns since 1913 shows no increase in wealth inequality for top 1% since 1960.
All of the increase in wealth inequality is not in the top 10% or top 1%, but rather the top .1% or top .01%. Here are some charts to consider.
