By Caroline Nesbitt-WrightPublished May 13, 2018 9:53:08For the past year, the first quarter of 2019 saw the steepest growth in social inequality since records began in 1949.
The United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom are the top three most unequal countries, with the US ranking as high as 13th, with Canada at the 15th spot and the UK at the 19th.
A study released last week by researchers at the University of Melbourne in Australia found that the wealthiest Americans are now earning almost $150,000 more than the poorest Americans in the US.
The gap between the richest and the poorest US households is almost $20,000.
That is nearly double the average household income of the median US household, which is $47,800, according to the study, which was released on Tuesday.
It also found that Americans are being forced to pay a higher share of their incomes to the rich than other countries.
The report said that Americans’ income is projected to grow more than three times faster than the rest of the world’s, which translates to an increase of about 10%.
In the US, the average income of a family of four was $43,000 in 2020, according the study.
That is a 10% increase from last year.
For the first time in a decade, the richest 1% of households are now able to earn almost as much as the poorest half of the population, the study found.
That means the richest Americans are earning an average of $1.3 million more than a family in the middle class.
In other words, the US is now more unequal than China.
The researchers, led by economists and sociologists at the U.S. State Department, found that inequality between the top 1% and the bottom 99% is increasing.
The US is the only developed country that has not managed to reach a median income in line with the rest the world.
China, the world leader in inequality, has a median household income that is a bit higher than the US at $53,400.
In 2020, the poorest 20% of China’s population received only $8,000 a month.
