Post 25 (B) - Find the Gini Indexes for the nations of the world and react to what that says about America.
After looking at the Gini Index on various websites it seems to show that the Unites States hovers around 45 on a scale of 0 to 100. I think this is safe to say since many citizens want to believe that our country is equal, this should go for the sharing of wealth as well. We are not a country run by strict groups where all of our money goes to the government, like many African countries. Then again we are not like many European countries where wealth is sent to the lower levels. America is a little below the middle, giving a little more wealth to the less wealthy but still evenly balanced.
