The word “inequality” conjures up images of a society that has been “infiltrated by the most evil forces of society,” as the title of an essay in The New York Times Magazine describes it.
It describes the inequality that has emerged as the consequence of the economic system that the world is experiencing.
But the inequality is also a term of art.
The word has been used as a verb for over a century to describe how people in a society have been disadvantaged.
It has also been used to describe the distribution of wealth, with inequality as a key measure of how that inequality manifests itself in society.
The key difference between these two senses of the word is that, historically, inequality has been understood as a result of economic inequalities.
In the early 20th century, the phrase “inequality in sight” referred to the inequalities in wealth that existed in the US, as the result of the unequal distribution of land and labor in the country.
The inequality in the economy was caused by the Great Depression and the Great War.
In the 1950s, the word “inequality” referred primarily to how much income people had earned.
Today, it is used to refer to the unequal quality of a person’s life, with the phrase describing how someone’s life has been negatively impacted by the economic circumstances of their upbringing.
The phrase also refers to the extent to which people in wealthy countries have been able to afford expensive goods and services.
Today, we can also see that inequality is not limited to economic inequalities, as a recent report from the Pew Research Center found that nearly two-thirds of all people surveyed in the United States believe that “inequities in sight,” which is a reference to inequality in wealth, have a negative impact on the health of the US.
The report found that more than two-fifths of all Americans believe that inequality in sight has a negative effect on the quality of life for people in the top fifth of income earners, while only 20 percent believe that the opposite is true.
A more recent report on inequality from the Institute for Policy Studies found that in the early 2000s, when President George W. Bush was in office, he made a statement on the importance of inequality in a speech in which he said: “The economic system is rigged against the most vulnerable, and it is rigged in favor of the very few.”
The report, titled “A Tale of Two Wars: The Rise and Fall of the American Economy and the Global Economy,” says that “a new class of billionaires and the richest Americans have seized power and wealth at the expense of everyone else in the world.”
The study found that while the number of billionaires was relatively small in the 1950, the number that are currently worth more than $1 billion was about the same in 2010.
It found that the wealth of the richest five Americans has risen from $8.2 trillion in 2010 to $15.6 trillion in 2020, while the wealth for the bottom fifth of American households has decreased from $5.3 trillion in 2009 to $4.2 billion in 2020.
It also found that between 2009 and 2020, the top 1 percent of Americans saw their net worth increase by over $20 billion, while those in the bottom 90 percent saw their wealth decrease by over a billion dollars.
“The current era of income inequality in this country is an unprecedented phenomenon,” the report reads.
“This inequality has occurred in a country that prides itself on its prosperity and which has an economic system built around the idea of a meritocracy.”
“The American Dream is a myth, and our economic system has enabled people to be locked in poverty, unable to advance in their lives, and denied opportunities for a life of dignity,” the authors of the report write.
It is the idea that a country has a meritocratic system that rewards individuals based on merit and that the system itself is built on merit that has led to a system in which the rich and powerful get richer and the rest of us live in poverty.
A key way in which inequality has increased over the past three decades has been the increase in inequality in education.
In the 1960s, just 11 percent of people in America received a college degree, while by 2010, that number had grown to 23 percent, according to data from the US Census Bureau.
As the authors note, in some ways, the rise in inequality is an outgrowth of this increase in educational attainment, which has led Americans to seek out higher education and have it more expensive.
“The increasing inequality of wealth and income, combined with the shrinking opportunities for most Americans to get a good education, has led many to look for work outside of the traditional industries that provided a middle-class existence,” the study says.
“For the middle class, the gap between the pay and the quality has widened, as people are now forced to compete for scarce jobs and for jobs that don’t pay well.”
