    It's very unusual to see a country deliberately wreck it's own economy for the percieved political advantage of the lunatic fringe of one political party.

    If you wamt a really good laugh, then watch this video of John McCain (hardly Obama's #1 supporter) rounding on the tea party loons who have effectively caused this mess.

    China's income inequality levels, as expressed by the GINI index, is low in comparison to Brazil's, geo. It is true that China's is becoming worse as time passes by, while Brazil is the only nation among the top 10 economies that is reducing inequality.
