About

Economic disparity refers to a gap in income between (on the one hand) the wealthiest members of society and (on the other) those with the fewest economic resources.

Symptoms of severe economic disparity include:

  • those at the highest income levels have wealth drastically out of proportion to the value or quality of their contributions to society
  • a significant portion of the population is unnecessarily impoverished with respect to society's ability to provide a minimum level of welfare for all
