In this corporate-controlled dystopia, called postmodern world, also known as new world order, the inequality and gap between rich and poor is growing wider at an exponential rate day by day. Among its various causes, inflation and debt enslavement can be named. Against the prime cause of this inequality, known as inflation, several countermeasures can be deployed, all of which require action by governments. On the contrary, debt enslavement, the most vicious monster in the 21th century, cannot be fought against, except with core changes in law, in form of an overhaul or thorough revision. In the following passages, I am going to shed some light on these two main causes of this dire situation while outlining the possible solutions.
Inflation is an economic event in which money starts to lose its value, thus increasing the cost of products and services. It occurs when the flow of money in an economic system is more than the raw value of products or services, therefore to cope with this situation, the cost of products and services has to be increased. It contributes to increasing the gap between rich and poor in a remarkably subtle way. While it seems to have no direct effect on the poor since their salary increases accordingly, economic entities, consisting of rich people, can take advantage of it by selling their goods above the inflation rate while having monopoly rights. The other contributing factor for the inequality between rich and poor is debt enslavement. Debt enslavement can happen when a person can't repay his or her debt to an official entity, usually a bank, instead he or she is forced to either work for them without any salary or suffer jail time.
Nothing much can be done to fight inflation by individual parties, therefore we need to rely solely on the government to solve or control the situation. While inflation can never be completely terminated, it can be reduced to an acceptable range which is less than 2 percent per year. Reducing inflation can be accomplished by controlling the flow of money on the market, and annual inspection of prices which can only be done by the government. However, debt enslavement is not so easily solved. The law of most countries allows a form of it to happen, therefore it's perfectly legal. The only way to prevent debt enslavement is prohibition by law, in other words, labor should not be forced upon anyone in any situation.
Last but not least, the gap and inequality between rich and poor in various nations across the globe appears to be one of the common problems of any era which has deep roots in human greed. This threat has been emerging since the dawn of time and we have yet to witness its full scale invasion, hoping when it strikes there will be something left to salvage from. Nothing will change, unless humans change first.
