Great disparity exists in the United States between those at the economic top of society and those at the economic bottom. While the difference between the "haves" and the "have-nots" is not a new phenomenon, the extent of the gap is now at previously unseen proportions. This paper examines the disparity, explores why and how it developed, and presents a new way to approach amelioration of the differences through the development of social empathy.
