Wealth

The Federal Reserve has just released its analysis of the nation's wealth. The net worth of the typical family, according to the report, rose more than 10 percent in 2001. As in past years, though, the gap between rich and poor widened. NPR's Robert Siegel talks about the Fed's report with Nancy Kimmelman of SEI Investments in Oaks, Pa.
