Average Americans no richer than 25 years ago

From AOL Real Estate

Americans are richer than they might think, though it may not seem like it.

The Census Bureau recently released data that indicated a drop of more than 35 percent in median household wealth between 2005 and 2010, while the Federal Reserve released a survey weeks ago that found that median net worth plummeted by 39 percent from 2007 to 2010.
