Ramifications of Continued Wealth Transfer in America

Referencing this article, “Bernanke Leaves Fed with Record Balance Sheet of $4,102,138,000,000“, $4.1 trillion divided among the shareholders of the private Federal Reserve will have enormous repercussions.

Here is a government breakdown showing the wages of Americans in 2012. It too suggests the concentration of wealth must clearly be among the top few.

Through diversification, it is common for the very wealthy to receive an annual 12% on their investments. Suppose that rate of return continues. Where does the wealth come from?

Will someone calculate and graph the transfer of wealth over time in America and then project it into the future? What does history tell us may happen if this continues? How will the super rich protect themselves against increasing discontent?
