Income inequality is one of New Mexico’s biggest challenges – we are #1 and that’s not a list we want to top.
Economic inequality (also described as the gap between rich and poor, income inequality, wealth disparity, or wealth and income differences) is the difference between individuals or populations in the distribution of their assets, wealth, or income. The term typically refers to inequality among individuals and groups within a society, but can also refer to inequality among countries. The issue of economic inequality involves equity, equality of outcome, equality of opportunity, and life expectancy.
Wall Street vs. Main Street. Rich vs. Poor. It’s all covered.
