The Income Gap is a Myth
So far this week we've heard how the income gap between the poor and the rich in BC is growing. BC Finance Minister Kevin Falcon commented that there's no income gap in Cuba because everyone is poor. That led to NDP leader Adrian Dix telling us something needs to change in regards to the gap. We also spoke to an academic who has written a book on what he says are the corrosive effects of income inequality. Today Fraser Institute economist Niels Veldhuis opined that the income gap is a myth.
