Unequal Terms

Unequal Terms.

Inequality is something I have been pondering for a long time. I have watched the documentaries “Inside Job” and “Inequality for all” recently. These two made me think about how and why the 2% control such massive, unbelievable wealth.

Inequality for all talks about the huge disparity in incomes in the US today. In fact, the income from one of the top earners in the US can buy homes for every homeless person in America.

Inside Job, on the other hand, talks about the financial crisis and how we got into this mess through greed and deregulation. The documentary made my jaw drop sometimes with the completely unethical things that investment banks were doing.

Both films are very watchable.
