    The issue of wealth & poverty is quite a contentious one.  There are moral & social pundits who vehemently declare that socioeconomic wealth is immoral, even exploitative.  They even go so far to cite that there should be an equalization of income so there is NO rich nor poor.  However, there are economists, businesspeople, & other successful people who see nothing wrong w/socioeconomic wealth.  They contend that they earned their wealth so they should do w/it as they please.  A few view socioeconomic wealth as a means to help others lead better lives.  On the opposite end, the same moral & social pundits view poverty as the direct result of gross socioeconomic inequality while there are those who view poverty as an end result of laziness, even stupidity, not to mention poor life choices.  Your views?
