US Has Fourth-Highest Income Inequality Rate in the World

A recent report issued by Paris' Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development analyzes the countries around the world with the highest income inequality rate, per capita. And guess where the United States sits? At number four -- right after Chile, Mexico and Turkey. Given our country's unemployment rate -- noted today to have jumped unexpectedly last week --compared to our proportion of billionaires (of the richest people on the planet, the US claims four of the top ten), this doesn't come as a huge surprise. But it does underscore what happens to a country in which the wealthy live on the backs of the poor -- for evidence, check these Mother Jones charts that illustrate why Congress is friendlier to Wall Street than Main Street.

List below; read more at the Huffington Post.

Aristocracy was never out of fashion.

I believe people should have the CHOICE to fashion their nation as they see fit and not be lectured to by DFH's like you.

Do you believe in CHOICE, Steven? I don't think you do. I do, though. CHOICE is great. Goooo CHOICE!

Having a concentration of wealth into a few takes away true choice.

I'm not quite sure what metric they used to measure income inequality, but I find it hard to believe that Russia didn't make the list.

How so? It absolutely doesn't. It just puts a lot of choice into a few hands while leaving the rest with the choice to either like it or not.

You and I have all the same choices as anyone else. However I dont have a lear to jump into anytime I want. Sounds more like a bad case of envy to me. Get over it!

Unfckin believable. Im sitting here on my PC reading this foolishness on VJ and what happens? I look up and this twenty something guy is standing at my door. I ask "what can I do for ya" He says "My girl friend and I are living down the street and we ran out of gas and we dont have any money, do you have a couple dollars for gas?" "I dont usually do this kind of thing but Im desperate." "We just bought an Escalade and its hell on gas." I looked at him and said "you are driving an Escalade and your asking me for fckin money for gas?" He says "I know ,right" I said "sell the caddy and get a yugo" No man I aint got no money.
