Why is the world always going towards the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer?


Answer by Jai Parimi:

Utopia is what you are asking for.

  • It is a world where everything is perfect. But, my doubt is who would do the low paying jobs when everyone is equally rich and have equal opportunities.
  • By saying the above statement, I might look like a chauvinist advocating capitalism or slavery or some other social evil. But, that's how the world works.
  • We need a person to do a particular job at every point of time. The person needs right motivation to reach a particular point (in this case income).
  • So, even if you create a utopian world, my guess is 'It comes crumbling down in less than 30 seconds.'

So, Should rich become richer and poor become poorer?

  • The video from Varsha Singh's answer has a scientific proof that poor are becoming rich but not relatively richer owing to their huge numbers.
  • Their standard of living is improving day by day basis. There were very few opportunities for the poor of the past to dream of better income. but, this has improved a lot across the world.
  • So, What I am trying to say is,

"To know the improvement of real standard of people, measure same people across time, not at same time across people."

Thanks for the A2A Varsha Singh. šŸ™‚
