When I was in high school, a friend of mine told me that in the US, “more money goes to the rich” than to the poor, and that “there are many, many more rich people than poor people in the United States.”
I was struck by the extent to which the disparity was both real and apparent.
We had, in other words, two societies in which the rich and poor were equally disadvantaged, but in which, in a society that was increasingly globalized, the poor were actually better off.
In other words: inequality of opportunity.
I knew that there were other factors that shaped inequality, too.
I knew that inequality was rooted in a wealth gap, which is a gap in the ability to earn more than your parents or grandparents.
But what I didn’t know was that inequality is not simply rooted in the income gap.
This is not the way inequality is usually defined.
In fact, it’s not even a widely held view in the academic literature, which has been almost entirely dominated by economic and social scientists.
As a result, inequality is often framed in terms of the distribution of income or wealth.
The word inequality, in fact, does not refer to inequality of wealth or income.
Rather, it refers to a system of unequal social and economic outcomes that arises from a number of factors, including a society’s culture, economics, political system, social norms, and social expectations.
Inequality is not a bad thing.
It’s true that the way we define inequality is important.
For instance, it is true that if the rich have more money, then they will generally be more generous to the less well-off.
But that’s not really the same thing as saying that they are the only ones in the country who deserve this largesse.
Inequality of opportunity also does not mean that all the wealthy are bad people.
A different kind of inequality is also important.
There are different kinds of inequality, and they have different effects.
One of the reasons inequality has been so difficult to capture in the political debates about inequality is that, as economists, we tend to focus on how inequality impacts economic outcomes.
But what we don’t do is how inequality affects social outcomes.
This means that we have a tendency to focus more on the wealth and income of the wealthy, and less on the lives of the poor.
We often think of inequality as a “disproportionality problem.”
In the United Kingdom, the rich get more from government than the poor do, which suggests that the poor are disproportionately disadvantaged.
What this misses is that inequality has a much more complex and nuanced impact than simply a distribution of wealth.
A society’s cultural norms and expectations can have an impact on how people think about their own social status.
Moreover, social and cultural differences can play a large role in shaping the way people see the world, especially in the context of inequality.
For example, the United Nations has shown that a country’s gender ratio can have a much larger impact on the quality of life for women than the ratio of men to women.
Our society is also shaped by a set of social norms.
For many years, inequality was considered an unfortunate byproduct of capitalism.
In some countries, this is not always true.
For others, it still is.
For the United Sates, for instance, inequality has become less of a problem than it used to be.
Yet we have much less understanding of inequality in our society, and more of a moral imperative to fight it.
That’s because there is a great deal of misinformation about inequality in the media.
Even more troubling, we often hear from the very people who claim to know more about inequality than the public.
They are often the very same people who, by virtue of their income or status, have more power over our society.
And we end up believing them more often than we would if we believed the public more.
Is the United State truly a society in which everyone is equal?
And yes, it should be.
However, it also should be a society where the rich are more equal than the rest of us.
The United States is a country that, at least in theory, has a fair amount of inequality between rich and the rest.
So where does the United St. Louis fall in the inequality equation?
If you are a person of color in the St. Loulas County, Missouri, metropolitan area, you are one of the most disadvantaged people in America.
According to the Census Bureau, the St Louis metro area is the ninth most segregated metropolitan area in the U.S. St. Louis is a predominantly white city.
It is one of just six cities that are both predominantly white and overwhelmingly white.
This is a city where, as a result of a large-scale migration of African Americans from rural areas, African Americans comprise a majority of the population.
But when it comes to poverty, African American communities are
