American’s view on growth inequality gap

A recent study of Pew Research has shown that Americans are convinced that the inequality gap has grown. While most of us will agree on that statement, many people have a different opinion of the reason of the gap growth. Is it because of immigration? The power of the reach people? Or is it completely Obama’s fault?

The study showed that more than 65% of the American population think that the gap between rich and poor people has increased over the past 10 years, while only 8% think the opposite is true.

“Among people who said the gap between the rich and everyone else has grown, we asked an “open-ended question” — what, in their own words, the main reason was. About a fifth (20%) said tax loopholes (or, more generally, tax laws skewed to favor the rich) were the main reason.

Ten percent pinned the blame on Congress or government policies more broadly; about as many (9%) cited the lackluster job market, while 6% named corporations or business executives.”

What is the main reason for the inequality gap growth, according to you? Is it going to increase still, or decrease? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
