This is a story we’ve been sharing on social media over the last few weeks about how the wealth gap is widening in America. Not only is it increasing wealth inequality, it it increasing poverty, particularly among the poorest in America.
The wealth gap is a problem, but it’s growing in a way that doesn’t seem to be reducing the poverty gap. In fact, the income inequality is the problem. When people have more money, they can afford the things that make the difference in how much they can afford to buy. But they don’t have the money to buy a car or a house or even eat out.
In the past few decades, there has been an increase in wealth inequality among the wealthiest Americans. This has started to take a toll on the US economy because it has made it very difficult for the middle class to live a life of luxury. If you are making more than $100,000 a year, you are probably making more money than a lot of other middle class families.
Another example of a rich world where the middle class has to go to work for free, and the rich world has to pay an outrageous amount of money to go to work. For decades the rich world was the only middle class that had the freedom to trade its wealth for food and shelter. These two facts have finally made the middle class rich.
The wealth that exists today, is the result of our success. It is not the result of our failures, poverty and suffering. If you can afford the luxury of a life of freedom and luxury, then you are not poor. To be poor is to have no access to that luxury.
There’s another reason that the world owes so much to the rich. It’s because the rich can’t afford to pay for food and shelter. We should all be poor. We should all need to get the aid we need to survive on earth.
That is the message of my new video from the website: “Why Are We Saying We Are Poor?” By using the term “poor” to describe yourself you are essentially saying you are not human. You are nothing more than a cog in the machine that is the world economy. The only question is in order to be truly poor you need to be willing to get up off your backside and do something about it.
It’s interesting how we constantly hear about people living on the streets and in cardboard boxes while we talk about how we should all become rich and famous – but we don’t even think about the millions of people who simply cannot afford to leave their homes every day without food, shelter, and a roof over their heads. There are people living in places that are literally crawling with poverty.
One of the most common questions we get asked is “How much does a person have to be homeless to be considered poor?” We don’t have the answers for that one. However, we do have some thoughts on how to get off the street and into a comfortable place – the first step is to find the right shelter.
If the shelter you need isn’t in your immediate area, you probably need to try to find someone who does have it. However, if you are really struggling to make ends meet, you could consider looking for a job or a way to make some extra money. That is, if you can actually find a way to work at something and not starve.
