19: Good Ass Ways to Make Money
The Momentum Advisors Show is a North Star podcast by certified financial advisors Tiffany Hawkins and Allan Boomer
The wealth gap in the United States refers to the difference in the distribution of assets among American households. This can be inequity between social classes (i.e. middle class versus high-income households), as well as inequity between races, such as the gap between the median wealth of Black households versus white ones. In 2016, this gap showed that the wealth of a typical white family was 10x that of the typical Black family.
According to The Brookings Institute wealth is defined as the sum total of resources available to a household at any point in time. So while wealth is determined by a number of factors, including level of spending and even inheritances, income is the greatest determinant of resource allocation. So if you can increase your income, you can increase your family’s wealth!
