The gap between rich and poor is on the rise with more than a third of all income concentrated in the hands of the top 10 per cent of earners, new research indicates.

It is one of a series of findings by the think-tank Tasc, which warns that income inequality will edge closer to US levels unless there are changes in economic and social policy.

Ireland is a free country so if people care they can simply stop buying stuff from the top 10% so they won't have so much income.

isn't learning to think fun?

It is so reassuring that government and the left are deciding how much "income inequality" should be allowed.

At what point do we want job creators to stop working? After they earn $10 million? $20 million? When do the rest of the people have enough jobs and they should stop? Great question

the sooner the better that way there is less inequality, but then they would stop creating jobs too wouldn't they?

Why not just celebrate rich businessmen the way we celebrate rich athletes? If we did perhaps there would be more of them and more competition to cut down on extreme wealth
