Compassionate One, we pray that you will guide, sustain, and take care of those who are suffering as a result of economic inequality around the world. In the United States, there is the greatest gap between the rich and the poor since 1928.
Poll: Americans in the upper fifth of the income distribution earn 16.7 times as much as those in the lower fifth – by far the widest gap among the 10 advanced countries in a global attitudes survey. Yet barely half (47 %) of Americans think the rich-poor gap is a very big problem. (PewResearch.org)
