The rich people seem to be getting greedier by the day, while the poor are struggling to make it THROUGH the day. It is so blatently unfair! Do you see any way to begin to right this wrong, or will it continue forever? Where do you see it all heading?

Extremely well said! Have you thought about writing a hub about this? If not, you should...it was an excellent answer!
i already have but not too many people agree with me - they just call me names like communist, fascist, liberal, progressive, crackpot - you know, all those derogatory names for people like me- non conservative and free thinking
There is nothing "fair" about "distributing" someone's wealth to other people. Also, your idea that income is finite is misguided. More wealth and prosperity can be created by those who work...if left alone by government regulation and "distribution.
i didn't say "distribute" anyone's wealth?every economy has a finite $$ amount. If not we can just print enough to pay off the nat'l debt. It is the hoarding 2 the point of damage that i refer to. excessive greed is not good for any economy.
You just contradicted yourself. You are proposing that the government should prevent rich people from doing what they please with their wealth. Hope for financial gain is what builds the economy. Why else own a business if you can't profit from it?
profits R a good thing. hoarding is not. Removing $$ from circulation 2 excess will collapse any economy. We need a complete new view of capitalism with focus on needs of people - not corporations
I think we can agree that a partnership between corporations and the government has created monstrous problems. However, it gets sticky when you try to force someone to use their own wealth in a certain way.
I must say you have a better grasp on expressing yourself than i do. Kudos for your comments.
Taking away the freedom (through Communism) to grow and earn wealth will effectively cause people to cease working, producing, and innovating. Why work hard to be successful when the government will reward your work by capping it and extreme taxing?

Ur views R 2 narrow. Greed is NEVER good. It doesn't matter how wealth is accumulated, when hoarding it hurts others does. Most people don't want something 4 nothing, just the chance at earning fair wages.those few who take advantage can't B factored
I agree with people having a chance to earn what they're worth. Many corporations and businesses have taken advantage of poor workers. My point is that it's wrong to steal---even if you are the government.
