Sanders Wrong on U.S. Inequality Ranking: First Democratic presidential debate

Sanders doubled down on a bogus claim that the income and wealth gaps between the affluent and the poor are larger in the United States than anywhere else:


This is just false.


When we initially condemned Sanders for a comparative case back on May 28, he in any event qualified it by saying U.S. imbalance was the amplest of any "real" nation. As we said in May, that is genuine just if Sanders bars countries, for example, Russia, Turkey and Brazil from his meaning of "major."

Yet, in the level headed discussion, Sanders substituted "any" for "major," and transformed what we beneficently called a distortion into a level out lie.

We found that the U.S. positioned 42nd in pay disparity utilizing the "Gini file," a generally utilized measure of imbalance, as per the World Bank.

Furthermore, with respect to riches, the U.S. positioned sixteenth in the offer of riches held by the wealthiest 1%, out of the 46 economies examined. Russia, Turkey, Egypt and Brazil were among those whose main 1% held a greater amount of their countries' riches. That was by 2014 Global Wealth Databook.
