Review and Question

I was lead here through watching Rising and had to subscribe! Listening to you guys really highlights the partisan spin/hackery so many other commentators have that I never realized before. I've learned much more about the dynamics of populism through this podcast than anywhere else. My question is how should we look at wage stagnation that the populist left/right both talk about. If you look at a chart of 'Real Medium Personal Income Growth' in the US it has steadily increased since the 70s. If you then compare that to the 'Real Hourly Wages' it tells a different story and has remained flat. What's the reason for this difference and how do you compare these metrics? Thanks! - I'm from Minneapolis as well.
