Rich and Poor: Bridging The Gap
While the gap between the world’s rich and poor is undisputably growing in the United States and worldwide, proposed solutions to this problem differ greatly. “The Growing Gap Between Rich and Poor: It’s Not Only the Poor’s Problem” explores this troubling divide. This book will help students to understand this global phenomenon, the reasons for it, and the solutions that have been proposed, such as financial deregulation and skewed tax systems that benefit the rich and put the poor at a disadvantage. This book suits a unit on world culture and history, the history of the United States, protest movements, and economics.
