« Attack of the INCREDIBLE SHRINKING tax burden! | Main | Portland's precipitous school enrollment decline: How do you stop it? »

March 09, 2005


Income disparities in the USA are not bad compared to many other countries. In the USA a beginning professional federal government salary is roughly $40,000/year. A Congress person make $158,000/year, roughly quadruple. In Kenya, a first year magistrate (judge) makes about $4000/year while a Member of Parliament (i.e., Congressperson) makes $80,000/year, 20 times more.

Let's count our blessings.
