a small difference between the earnings of the richest and the poorest 雅思写作7.5分范文
Some people think that in order to produce a happy society, it is necessary to ensure that there is only a small difference between the earnings of the richest and poorest. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
It is often argued that in order to create a happy society, the gap between the earnings of the richest and the poorest should be narrowed. I think a monetary scale is not appropriate to measure the happiness level of a person; whether it is the rich or the poor.
Firstly, one should understand happiness is not a tangible thing to measure because most people define it in different ways. If the case of money is taken into consideration, there is no specific limit of earnings that makes a person happy. To be precise, the rich desire more money to make themselves happier. Similarly, the poor want more money to explore new horizons in their life, for example, a car or their own house. Yet happiness would not stay longer with them as they aim for new desires.
Finding the best way to find happiness in society is really a hectic job. It should be understood that a happy society should meet all the basic needs and is to be updated with the developmental processes as per the technological and scientific advancements. For example, in a society in which smartphones and computers are popular, irrespective of the economic status, one can hardly distinguish the happiness level between the rich and the poor.
On the other hand, balancing the earnings of the richest and the poorest is one attempt to make society happy. However, it seems to be hardly practical as one cannot easily re-order a social system, which shaped itself over a thousand years.
To conclude, though the idea of narrowing the gap between the earnings of the richest and the poorest seems to be a good idea to embrace happiness, it hardly happens. Instead, other factors such as satisfying the basic needs of society and updating them with technology seem to be more productive.
