Is this America or a 3rd world country?

Downtown LA. What’s happening to America? Seriously, what’s going on? I’m starting to see this in my city as well. It was never this bad before.

I'm a fobulous fob

Wow, that looks like an upscale homeless neighborhood with tents and everything.  The homeless people over here doesn't even have tents.  They just stay under a bridge.

But I've seen homeless centers in most cities that I visit.  Even in San Francisco and New York I've seen them gathering around a bus stations or community centers.

But you also got Beverly Hills in LA which is the complete opposite, elite luxury. It's well known the gap between the wealthy and poor is increasing

that's bc the city allow them to do that. Many of these people are homeless by choice. Now near my work, they have these mobile bath houses for these people.

intergenerational persistence of income chart.  The most unequal developed country is the UK.  Basically if your parents were poor, you are more likely to stay poor in the UK and the US than in other developed countries.  The Nordic countries are the best places for immigrants to start a family.  The first generation may be dirt poor but that does not affect the 2nd generation that much.  This explains why the same street in California and New York can run through several different neighborhoods with one looking like Monaco and the other South Sudan.
