Throughout history, poverty is exist all the time. Of all the epic structures the human race has devised, none is more staggering or imposing than the Gap Between Rich and Poor.
Every Year at least 40 million innocent men, women and children needlessly and ruthlessly perish on this planet from hunger, starvation, disease and malnutrition.
Each day an estimated 2 billion people worldwide live in absolute abject poverty.
“The attempt to make heaven on earth invariably produces hell.” It is not true that countries get rich at each other’s expense. Would America be better off now? Europe and Japan had stayed poor after 1945? Did its jobs migrate, its economy stagnate, leaving rising poverty and chronic unemployment? A wake-up call to everyone who allowed allusions to the gap between rich and poor to pass without critical judgment.
In modern open-market society, entrepreneurs get rich and the poor get better, as a result — while they’re not going to get as rich as fast. Of course the gap thereby gets wider: with joblessness persistently high, the top and bottom both rise to levels much higher than before.
