Sorry, one more thing, then I’ll shut up. Honest.

America’s (and Canada’s) “mass affluent culture” is built on the back of global poverty. North America does not exist in isolation from the rest of the globe, as we all know. When you are considering figures relating to the gap between the rich and the poor, you have to take into account the cost paid by people suffering the extreme realities of poverty all over the world. What is “not bad” for Americans, can be shown to be very bad indeed for some other people.
