I had always known there was a significantly visible gap between the poor, middle class, and rich classes in the United States. What I had not known, however, until watching the Wealth Inequality in America video in class, is how wealth is unequally distributed and heavily skewed in the United States. Before this video, I classified wealth as the ideal distribution shown in the video, as well as many others who thought the same. Seeing the reality of the wealth distribution in America was definitely quite unexpected, as I had not imagined the distribution to be extremely skewed to the rich. It is indeed mind-blowing but my initial response to this video is quite sickening. Definitely a mind-opener for me, both politically and economically. I shall most definitely not let the analysis of this video be brushed aside.
