미국의 경제(빈부격차를 중심으로)
People have thought that America is the society of middle class. There are high and low, but majority is the middle class obviously. But I think it’s not true nowadays. American economic structure is changing from diamond shape(◆) to sandglass( ). Many wealthy and low class person, and relatively small middle class person rather than the past. It is the reality of the state. Since 1980s, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer because of unbalance in income distribution. According to the statistics of Congressional Budget Office, it is definitely true. From 1977 to 1988, income of the highest 1% increased 122% from $203,000 to $451,000 per year. On the other hand that of the lowest 20% decreased 20%.
