• Tony Blair and Gordon Brown; that says it all.
  • Yes, because the economy has a tendency of pulling all the wealth out of the system, and piling it up in banks, rather than circulating the wealth around. Banks then make more money (interest), on stockpiled money. This partly contributes toward the rift between rich and poor, as well as executives and managers wages increasing far faster than bottom end workers.
  • Of course. The facts support it .The wealth gap is getting bigger.
  • Yes I certainly believe so.
  • It's not a belief, it's a fact. Not 'believing' this is living in a state of constant denial of reality.
  • Yes. Because the rich will always control the wealth and the poor will never have any control.
  • Yes. The rich have left over time and money which they can invest to make themselves richer. Poor people spend all their time and money trying to stay alive and so don't have anything left over to help them get richer. Having said that, years ago I read a study in BRW on the richest families. What they discovered was that someone may go from rags to riches and then hand over their fortune to the kids. 66% of the time the kids blow it. 99% of the time, if the kids don't blow it then the grand kids blow it. So rags to riches (and riches to rags) is happening all the time and there is hope for us all. (just not all of us at once!)
  • Sometimes it seems that way but i don't believe that's how it always is.
  • Not necessarily, the poor can also become rich and the rich can also become poor
  • The rich have tax attorneys who find loopholes to keep the government away from their money,whereas the poor and working class are raped by Congress via the IRS
