Florida study shows income inequality slows economic growth

Florida study shows income inequality slows economic growth

A new study points to income inequality (the gap between those making most of the income and those making the least) as one of the main culprits for a country’s lagging economy. The United States’ income inequality is currently very high — and yet, some states are faring worse than others. Florida ranks “as the fifth-worst state in the nation on a measure of income inequality,” the Gini Index, according to the Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy . Mother Jones reports that “equality” in income remains one of the most important “economic drivers” in an economy: “Countries where income was more equally distributed tended to have longer growth spells,” says economist Andrew Berg, whose study appears in the current issue of Finance & Development , the quarterly magazine of the International Monetary Fund.

Personhood Florida leader says many critics ‘participated in taking their own child’s life’

Personhood Florida leader says many critics ‘participated in taking their own child’s life’

A handful of high-profile Christian activist groups and conservative legislators have declined to lend their support to Florida’s proposed fetal personhood amendment, an initiative that aims to outlaw abortion and some forms of birth control. # That’s not deterring Personhood Florida leader Bryan Longworth, who says many of those who “have a negative view of the bill have participated in an abortion” and “have to come to grips with the fact that they participated in taking their own child’s life.” # Anti-abortion critics say the initiative is simply too extreme, and are instead supporting legislation like a bill that would require that women seeking an abortion undergo mandatory ultrasounds.
