Technically correct, but a sign of a trend. An important trend.Inequality does not prove that people are worse off:
400-200 = 200
1000 - 201 = 799
201 > 200
Missed the point. They have computers, TVs, and cars. You should visit and make a judgment on how well off they are.The projects and Indian Reservations make up a very small portion of the US, but I would bet that they have even improved over the past 20-30 years of economic liberalization. Even if they have not, it is hard to despute for the broad majority, over 95%, our lives have been made better off, not worse off over the years.
