They will have more positive feelings feel smarter and when people become richer (Carlson, 2013). This is the reason why the rich people have the better life and happier than poor people. At a certain level, money makes the rich happier than the poor. When people have everything they need, they do not worry about the way to earn it. Everybody believes money will ensure a good life for most people.
Inequality of Wealth and Income Distribution in America Every American dreams of finding a job that pays well enough so that they may comfortably take care of their loved ones and themselves for years to come. Most Americans hope to find some way to make a living that they enjoy, something that they view as productive. Unfortunately, many do not have this luxury. In our society, a good portion of the population is forced to hold the base of our country in place while hardly being redeemed for their time and effort, and thus the problem of income inequality. Numbers of these people live from paycheck to paycheck, barely getting by, not because they manage their money poorly, but because the value of their time at work is negligible.
In the words of James Truslow “the American dream is a dream in which life should be better, fuller and richer for everyone with oppurtunity for achievement despite ability (Hanlon pg.1). With the many changes in society this is what American citizens strive to live by each and everyday of their life. As we all know back in the past many of our elders considered making a better living the true definition of the American Dream. Not only have technological advances and better career oppurtunites allowed our familes to have the better living they have fought for but it has created a new definition. Today’s definiton is to have financial stablity, a home with a loving family , and a great career.
There are those who say that if the person was raised in a rich family, all opportunities are available to them and there is a high! chance that the person will live a comfortable life. The same people are saying that if the person was raised in a poor family there are too many obstacles to overcome and most of the time these barriers on the way are too hard to cross. On the other hand, there are those people who say that the America is the land of opportunities and any person could achieve his/her goals if they set their mind to it. It is true that being born in the rich family helps a great deal during the course of your life.
One of the most prevalent and pervasive social issues in the United States today is the provision of equal access to health care for the impoverished. Far too many people live in conditions of poverty and struggle to find the means by which to meet their basic needs. For those without insurance, access to medical care is often preempted by other necessities. An unexpected medical expense can push this group further into poverty. Those who do have insurance may find themselves underinsured in the event of an emergency and unable to make the necessary co-payments.
They have many more things in life going for them that makes their life easier in a lot of ways. These elite ultra rich individuals should be known as the .01%. Everyone agrees it is negative when such few people have such a large control of the wealth. However, they are at another advantage because if we tax them they can take their profit to other countries to better their assets. All of these advantages relate to the bigger picture of one’s socioeconomic status and how influences their success.
Through a good job of course. Having an enjoyable, good paying job is extremely important. I am a firm believer that if you enjoy what you do, you do not have a job, you have a career. Many Americans also include jobs and money in their American Dream: ?Throughout much of our nation?s history people pursued the American Dream by... ... middle of paper ... ..., many people think about having millions and millions of dollars; however, they fail to consider the little things that can truly make you happy. Little things such as family and friends, and most importantly, good mental as well as physical health.
Both parties would be happy. With a more equalized society America can move into a positive, progressive country and economy. America’s economy would improve immensely because the debts and deficits would decrease to the point there would not be none, which would mean America would go back to being the number one industrialized country in the world. America would finally stand on its own. There would be a booming of population, increase in jobs and revenue, and America would be financially stable.
The American Dream is known to be a hope for a better, richer, happier life for all citizens of every class. For almost all Americans, this entails earning a college degree, gaining a good job, buying a house, and starting a family. Although this seems wonderful, a large amount of the American population believes that the Dream has changed immensely because of increased prices in today’s society, the price of tuition being highly unaffordable, as well as the unemployment rate skyrocketing and weaker job growth. While some American citizens believe it has changed, others believe that the American Dream has not changed, but point out it is harder to obtain. There are multiple factors that make the American Dream come true.
Now that it is able to be offered to such a large percentage of the world’s population, it would be foolhardy to neglect the opportunity to learn to read, write, ... ... middle of paper ... ...rly every job which can support a family requires a college degree. Obviously there are innumerable reasons why America is slipping into a semi-depression. These reasons are inter-dependent on each other, and reach from personal lifestyles to international policies. It will take time, prudence, and to be able to make the changes necessary. I believe that we should start with those who will make the changes: the Americans themselves.
