Deputy Dog has an interesting post entitled Extreme Rich-Poor Divides. It contains some rather striking pictures of “the tracks” and how people live on the wrong side of them. In many of these countries, these types of things are taken for granted. Even in the United States, where CEOs make hundreds of times what average employees earn, unbridled greed seems to be acceptable (and even encouraged). It’s interesting to see where all of this will lead. Will people (both rich and poor) decide that it makes more sense to normalize the quality of life for everyone? In a nation where few people have a problem with driving 5,000-pound vehicles to the grocery store, and where tax cuts for .1% of the richest Americans are commonplace, it seems unlikely to me.
