Poverty And The Wealth Disparity

I find it interesting that we constantly see stories concerning the “highest paid” and wealthiest people of society and how much money they are making. 

However, when it comes to the other end of the spectrum, how many stories and statistics do we see about such things as those living in poverty, the wealth disparity, etc?  Few if any.

I’m not sure why this is so…I’m sure it is “sexier,” more fun, and more popular to talk about the wealthy. 

I, for one, would like to see much more press coverage and statistics with regard to those less fortunate.  I think it is very important both socially, and from an economic standpoint, to be highly aware of (and acting effectively upon) how well all members of society are faring, especially during this period of economic weakness.
