Inequality

Is inequality an unavoidable fact of life? It’s easy to think that it is. The overall wealth of the richest 1,000 people in the UK has doubled in six years.

What do you think? Is this happening everywhere? (Is there anywhere where it isn't?)

    In this case we're looking at inequality in terms of wealth and not just due to race @kindgnice. I'm sure that there are some very wealthy people in the Philippines who own a disproportionate percentage of the country's wealth and resources.

    Agreed. And the bad reality is that, some of those wealthy people didn't bother themselves of helping less fortunate individuals.

    Circulation of money is really important in the form of charity, donations, aids, etc. But, unfortunately it is a lust that certain people can't get rid of easily.

    Getting more money is a never ending greed. Most of the people would never satisfy with their wealth. I believe this trait is mental disease and it needs to be addressed like other mental diseases.

    As they say, money is the root of all evils.

    Like many places, in Romania and Moldova the people in the cities are relatively rich, but the majority of country people are very poor.

    Moldova has loadshedding like Nepal, with one or two days a week when there is no power.
