Perspective

Talk about first world problems.

I write about structural forces that reinforce poverty in the US, part of this includes American economic inequality. I just read this article from the Mail Online that presents in picture that economic disparity across the globe, never mind in the US.

The top one per cent comprises anyone with an income over $34,000 after tax

(Incidentally, many social workers don’t fit into that category, just FYI. 🙂

This ties in to something I’ve been mulling over and will write on soon, relating to the way that poverty is measured.

Until then, this is a nice dose of perspective.
