3) A student in part
of her post said-inequality in America is crazy...and people who live in
other countries want to live here? In talking to a couple of people who
moved to America from other country and they were telling me how people in
their country see America as the land of the free and opportunity.
I would add it
depends on where they came from.
In addition, some
textbooks now have a term called "reverse migration" where people who migrate here end up going back to their own
countries. Some do so because of crime here. Others do so because their
economies are getting better, such as persons from India and China.
Europeans stay just where they are, such as France.
True, some Brits come
here and get great media jobs on TV . However, some
Americans love British accents, thinking they
sound so much more intelligent. In addition some may aim to become the 1%, who
here make more than the 1% there in western Europe!
However, many still
stay in western Europe and have high incomes most of us would love
to have, including, yes, the middle class there. For example, in France
and Germany wages are double what they are here, and cost of living
is the same.
