In Canada, rising exports and consumer spending have translated into better growth. ________________________________________________________________________________________ While the U.S. economy is seeing significant growth, economies in neighboring countries, Canada and Mexico, are doing also well. In Canada, rising exports and consumer spending have translated into better growth. This year, their GDP will grow by about 2.25 percent with a similar boost predicted for 2015. Meanwhile to our south, an energy boom is propelling the Mexican economy. The Mexican government's recent decision to allow foreign and domestic companies to explore for and refine oil will prompt Pemex, Mexico's state-owned enterprise, to become more competitive, boosting growth. Also, home building in the country is recuperating, and manufacturing is on the rise as the U.S. and Canadian consumer demand begins to rebound. This is promising news for U.S. businesses overall since Mexico and Canada are amongst the U.S.' top foreign customers, accounting for $944-billion-plus in exports.

Fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. This latest analysis, like most others on inequality, is fundamentally misleading because it relies on snapshots of the income and wealth distribution, failing to account for important changes that happen over time. The report implicitly assumes that people with low income today are the same people who will have low income in the future. In reality, the income and wealth of Canadians is anything but stationary over the course of their lives. Just think of your own life experience. Many of us start off with low-paying jobs when we're young, in school, and have little work and life experience. After finishing college, university, or other training, a high wage isn't necessarily guaranteed. ...
