The main reason for the gap between the many and the few which has happened over decades, is lack of economic growth.
The main reason for the growth in wealth of the few is growth in their investments in the form of stocks, real estate and their businesses.
Americans enjoy the benefits of a global economy which has lowered the price of many goods and services Americans buy each day.
Unless we stimulate economic growth which creates demand for skilled workers there is no reason for worker wages to rise. Competition for workers will increase the value of cash and non-cash compensation.
Economic growth must occur on a global basis because no nation can survive in isolation.
Personal economic wellbeing in the form of income and wealth cannot be had without personal growth taking advantage of every opportunity. The job of the worker is to increase his/her value to the employer.
The few do not prevent the many from opportunities.
Government’s role is not to force transfers of wealth, but to create an environment that stimulates economic growth to the benefit of all.
