    There is a group that is in the .01 -.001%. Kind of what I would call wealth concentration. It seems to me that a large percentage of those people are liberals. There are some that would be more conservative.

    I would guess that in the US it is more of a bottom heavy bell curve, however there is access to moving up or down the curve. How would you even the wealth curve?

    The other countries that you speak of are none of our concern. If they take advantage of our advancements that is good, if they oppress their people that is their business. We should not be attempting to tell them what to do.

    Well, yeah. ďSlaveryĒ figuratively. Like maybe someone controls the choices so you end up with nothing but take it or leave it propositions. But thatís not literally slavery.

    No, not chattel slavery. But slavery in the sense you have very little say in the way you live your life, liberties severely eroded, and dependent on your masters for various, lifeís necessities.

    No. Everyone is poor. Well, except for the guy in charge living in the palace. And his cronies.

    More wealth inequality does not mean less wealth is distributed overall. Wealth is not zero-sum. The slope for most people is upwards. For rich people itís much steeper, so of course they accumulate wealth much faster. So then, over time they get much richer. But the slope is still positive for most people. Iím not saying there are no ill effects of wealth inequality. But itís not the dire situation that people like to imagine.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Does PragerU have an ideology?


    Every person and every organization has a value system and a set of beliefs. PragerU is no different. We believe in the principles that have made America great. We believe in economic and religious freedom, a strong military that protects our allies, and in the religious values that inform Western civilization, also known as Judeo-Christian values.
    Are you an accredited university?


    No, PragerU is not a university, nor do we claim to be. We do not offer degrees. However, we are the most influential online resource for explaining the concepts that have made America great.

    Given that Democrats represent themselves as patriots with evidence of said claim being merely pro forma, I will allow Prager to call itself a university. A University Press confers no degrees but does purport to create educational materials

    Abepo fails to note that while the US wealth distribution is a skewed distribution (because we have so very few people at the bottom end of the distribution), it is in no way an abnormal distribution mathematically beyond that skew. On a log scale for income it is a near perfect normal distribution

    A university press, as defined is a known and common term. University, in this case, is a Proper Adjective.

    Prager University, prima facie, is a co-opting of the Proper Noun, University. Prager is the adjective. They don't offer a disclaimer at the onset of any of their articles or podcasts.

    Defending their right to the name is specious, as is the organization (if he has one).
