Why is there such a gap between the wealthy and the rest of the people in the US?

Since 2008, the number of billionaires have not only increased in number, the size of the billionaires fortunate have also dramatically increased. So how is this happening? What is the root cause of that anomaly? If we know this root cause of wealth, can it be changed to aid in redistribution of wealth across the US population?
