Inequality Income and Wealth

Income inequality is the state of an economy in which the shares of total income earned by the rich and poor are highly unequal. Inequality in America has been growing significantly since the 1970s after several decades of stability, meaning the part of the nation’s income received by higher-income homes has increased. This country’s highest 0.1% of income-earners have, over past decades, realized their income rise much faster than the remainder of the top 1%. Incomes at the high 0.1% increase 7.5 periods between 1973 and 2007, from 0.8% to an all-time high of 6%. The 2008 Great Recession it did weaken the high 0.1% of people’s income. The decades saw the annual incomes of these ultra-wealthy explode in size. Between 1992 and 2002, those 400 highest incomes were reported to this internal income delivery more than doubled after the wreck of the illusion in 2000. In the early 21st century, the economic prosperity pushed by the property makes more than 400 median income before the 2008 budgetary crisis. The distribution of wealth and income of the nation are split among its population or how much should i pay someone to take my online class. Such patterns of distribution are discerned and studied by various statistical means, all of which are based on data of varying degrees of reliability. Although income gaps are getting smaller, there are reasons why income inequality still exists in our society. While income is generated, wealth is created. Many believe that these two terms are the same thing, but in reality, income is a flow of money, which a soul receives from different origins such as pay, rent, profit, interest, and, many other affairs that aid in the creation of wealth and wealth is the total market value of all the assets possessed, stored or saved by a person for future usage.

West Cheltenham Forum meeting Wednesday 13th September

The next West Cheltenham Forum meeting will be held at;

Hesters Way Community Resource Centre from 5.30-7pm on Wednesday 13th September

We are pleased to announce that after conversations with elected representatives at CBC that we can confirm that a ward based application for a Neighbourhood Forum will be looked upon favourably by Cheltenham Borough Council’s Cabinet Committee (the group that has the power to designate Neighbourhood Forums and approve their areas).

Our task for the meeting is to agree which local ward or wards if any might be selected for applications to designate to keep local Neighbourhood Plans on track. Springbank ward having now been chosen as a Forum is leading the way.

This comes at a very opportune moment as the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) proposals are being brought forward. If agreed CIL proposals will require that representative local bodies such as a designated Neighbourhood Forums will be in a position to help the Borough Council manage funds for the benefit of each local community. The sooner we can have established forums the better we can help plan for the future.

Please let us know if you will be attending as we will be providing refreshments.

We are looking forward to seeing a good turnout, so please invite everyone who’s been involved and any others who might like to help!
