Talk about a huge gap between the poor and the rich!

Monterey County in California has Carmel and Monterey, but only 15 minutes away is Salinas, the poorest place in the entire region. What happened here?

The Walking Dead Skid Row Homeless Encampments Downtown Los Angeles, walk with me thru the heart of skid row with people walking aimless down the streets, similar to the walking dead. Trash everywhere but no government officials to be seen. Rats are everywhere and come out of the drains and are spreading disease here to include bubonic plague. The Homeless Problem in America is now in most metropolitan areas and look no further than Hollywood, Burbank, Sun Valley Downtown and now expanding east and west. Sacramento, San Francisco all Major Cities in California are inflicted with this disease.

How the Californian dream became a nightmare:

Lainaus
For Americans, California once looked like the future. It was a state defined by risk-taking and utopian dreaming. Yet for most Californians today, the upward mobility so central to the state’s ethos is rapidly disappearing. For decades, California was the primary destination for both other Americans and for foreign immigrants. Now, this trend has gone into reverse, with people and companies leaving the state. Population growth, already slowing over the past decade, has turned negative for the first time in modern California’s history, largely due to the state’s shrinking middle and working classes and its loss of families...

...Once a beacon of upward mobility, California’s tech-dominated economy has now become what analyst Antonio García Martínez describes as ‘feudalism with better marketing’. California has the fourth-highest GINI inequality index out of American states, and has experienced a sizeable expansion of inequality since 2010, according to American Community Survey data. Despite California’s fanatical commitment to ‘anti-racist’ affirmative action and racial preferences, African-Americans and Latinos perform poorly in terms of income and homeownership in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, with the latter among the most segregated places in the US. The gap between California’s fantastically rich elite and the struggling masses illustrates the emptiness of the elites’ supposedly ‘progressive’ values...

...Much to the chagrin of the state’s ‘progressive’ elites, California’s racial politics isn’t getting any better, either. Indeed, California’s green policies are effectively reviving segregation. Even environmental groups have taken notice. Policies pushed by ‘overwhelmingly white climate activists, underwritten by its overwhelmingly white billionaires’, notes the Breakthrough Institute’s Jennifer Hernandez, have fostered ‘a new Green Jim Crow era in California’.

Taloudellisesti Kalifornia on keskimääräiselle asukkaalle ok, mediaanitulo on 6. korkein Yhdysvaltain osavaltioista.

Ja tämä on siis mediaani, sen asukkaan tulo jota puolet tienaa enemmän, ja puolet vähemmän. Siis eri asia kuin keskiarvo, jota hinaa ylöspäin miljonäärit.

Gini-kerroin on Kaliforniassa melko korkea, siis sillä mitaten eriarvoisuus on suurta. Mutta siis myös keskimääräinen Kalifornialainen tienaa kohtuullisesti.
