The Divided States: how economic inequality shapes the 2012 Presidential race

  • Politics
  • International

As American voters prepare for the Presidential ballot, the economic inequality is the largest since the Great Depression. While the financial crisis left many people without a job and a lot of debt, a small majority is doing better than ever.
The elections are therefore less about personal or ethical preferences, than they are about the future ecnomic model of the States.
