Not to get all political on ya, but this 6:24 video was so eye-opening that I had to share it. It looks at three things:
- How we think wealth in the US is distributed
- How we’d like wealth to be distributed
- How wealth is actually distributed
The video’s connection to BargainBabe.com’s mission to help people save money is this: You and I are spending a lot of time saving money and spending wisely, but it is getting us ahead? Are we really changing our futures? Improving the prospects of our children?
We could do a lot of damage by racking up credit card debt, but aside from that obviously bad idea, I have to ask.
Is our frugal lifestyle truly making an impact?
This video screams NO! It implies that the rich get richer because they control nearly all the chips, the poor stay poor, and the middle continues to strive without much change in fortune.
How depressing is that?
