Ray Kang's curator insight, January 20, 2014 7:43 AM

From this article, I understand that the low and middle income households have been restrained by the high-income class as the high-income class enjoyed both increased opportunities and increased incentives for rent-seeking, it has a strong impact on the low and middle income families as they had to pay more rents. It may because of capitalism which means the rich become richer and it eventually causes the poor to become poorer. Government should find ways to stop or restrain the trend of the bigger and bigger difference of people's income.
