Income disparity is one of the key issues that many people consider when they talk about the poor and middle class. Many times this is also brought up when talking about wealth or the rich. The issue of income disparity becomes more pressing when one talks about the poor. There are many different forms of income disparity, most notably measured by the distribution of income between the poor and the rich. Aside from economic disparity between nations or states, there also are different kinds of income disparity between different classes of individuals. For instance, if you belong to the upper strata of the economic ladder you will automatically have a bigger slice of the pie than those who belong in lower rungs of the economic ladder.
Income disparity can be caused by a lot of factors. It can be caused by a society’s general conditions or the state of the economy. It can also be caused by personal choices, traits, personality or even luck. There are many factors that contribute to income disparity. One of the biggest contributors to income disparity is what is called unequal access to capital.
Capital refers to the value of something, such as real estate or raw land. The distribution of capital can be very uneven. This means that some people have lots of access to capital while others do not.
One example of unequal income distributions would be the top 10% earning bracket. The earnings of the top 10% earners are so incredibly high that they control a big portion of the country’s total income. While there are many reasons why income distribution is unequal, one thing that has been proven time again is that income distributions can be affected by a country’s political system.
Let’s take a look at what has been found with respect to income disparity by the political system. The latest research done by the Pew Research Center has determined that income inequality is quite extreme in many developed countries like Canada and the United States. This is because the U.S. has a very polarized politics, where there is a deep cultural divide along racial lines, along economic lines and even according to religion. This means that every major social and economic statistic is affected by who you are as an individual. For example, the poor and uninsured are very much overrepresented in the poorer states in the U.S., whereas wealthy individuals are overrepresented in the wealthier states.
One way to investigate the question of income disparity is to look at the Gini Coefficient. The gini coefficient is a common measure of wealth inequality. It is a number that indicates how much of a person’s income is spent on their assets. By graphing the income distributions of the country, it is easy to see the extreme level of wealth inequality there is in the country. In Canada, the same thing is true, but there is a much more balanced level of wealth inequality because of their national wealth index that measures the overall health of the Canadian economy.
There are many different ways to look at and understand the question of income inequality. However, one of the most useful is to look at the Gini Coefficient. The gini coefficient will tell you the extent to which income levels are distributed across individuals in the country. It will also show the degree of economic equality across individuals within a country. When an income distribution is more evenly distributed across individuals, that means that income is more evenly shared, and when it is more unequal, that means that income is more unequally shared.
The problem arises when income distributions are very far apart. This extreme degree of income inequality has been labeled the top 1 percent. A study done by Oxford University shows that the top one percent controls about 42 percent of the wealth in the economy. This means that if you are in the top one percent, you will be the only person who will receive any wealth at all.
