Post 25b

Mr. Campbell asked us to find the Gini Indexes for the nations of the world and react to what that says about America.

The US's Gini index is about 0.4, which is 44th in the whole world. Its like this because the US follows capitalism, which basically means anyone can make as much money as they want. No ones going to stop them, but they need to  take risks to be rich. Anyone can make as much money as they want no matter who they are. I believe that the index will stay between 0.35- 0.45 for a long time, as long as the country doesn't change to a different form of government.
