There is one critical issue that has become topical in the world and that is inequality. As the economy grows, some people are being left behind and that becomes a critical question. People take up arms against the state because they don't see any future in the state. And so, how do we lessen the inequality between our people? Especially as the economy starts to accelerate, you begin to see a wide gap between the richest segment of your population and the poorest segment. When you get the additional resource as the oil and gas, you are likely to see billionaires and you are likely to see people who really are in the boondocks.
