ABSTRACT
The article discusses the increasing economic inequality in the U.S. The increase in inequality in the U.S. over the past thirty years has become evident in the pages of the major media and has also caught the attention of a few prominent economists. There is a chasm between the rich and the poor. Accordingly, people are in a class because of their income and level of schooling. The economic inequality is attributed to capitalism. It is a normal feature of capitalist economies where there is a quiescent working class. An analysis of capitalism by Marx is explored.
