This is an important story reported in the Huffington Post. It’s a RECOMMENDED READ, in my view. Check it out!
According to President Obama income inequality is America’s No. 1 issue. However, inequality is increased on his watch.
It’s interest to reflect on increasing income inequality in the UK. Inequality has increased significantly on David Cameron‘s watch. The wealthy have come out of the 2008 financial crash the strongest, with the lower and middle classes still suffering enormous economic and social damage.
Strangely, UK growth is consumer led, on the back of government guarantees for home loans. Also consumer credit is growing strongly again. Meanwhile, the public sector and the business sector has seen capital investment for 2013 plummet. I fear that the UK recovery is still not sufficiently broadly based. BUT more importantly, on the back of austerity UK income inequality will continue to increase.
