Some people believe the range of technology available to individuals today
is increasing the gap between poor people and rich people. Others think it
is having an opposite effect. Discuss these points of view. What is your
While some people argue that a variety of technology advancements in modern
times lead to a rise in the social distance between the wealthy and the
poor, others suppose that the technology development gives more
opportunities for ones who desire to change their life. In my opinion,
technology progress is both opportunity and challenge for contemporary
On the one hand, the development of technology let the gap between the rich
and the poor incline significantly. One reason is that the wealthy people
or business have enough money to possess a new advancement of technology
and use it to improve their present status considerably. For example, a
manufacturing machine with better quality and quantity is invented, and
only businesses who can purchase it will have more advantages compared to
competitors. Furthermore, technology provides many benefits when it comes
to aspects such as education, work efficiency or even relationship. With a
smart phone today, people are able to perform a large number of tasks more
conveniently and effectively, from learning a language in spare time, to
conducting an online meeting or looking for a relationship through social
network applications. Therefore, they will have more chances to make money
and enhance life standards.
On the other hand, the technology also gives the opportunities to the poor
who are desirous to change their life and family. Internet is one of the
greatest inventions which connect people all over the world and let the
world become flat. Nowadays, people could learn anything they want from the
internet and apply for a job or scholarship in foreign countries. Hence,
effort might raise one person’s life and social position to new high level
thanks to the aid of technology. Moreover, the available wide range of
technology helps creative people have an opportunity to combine them and
make a new invention. For instance, in the past, the mobile phone was only
used for calling, and the computer was merely utilized for installing
software.Then, a student had an idea to make a product which is able to
function both as a phone and a computer; and iphone was born and made a
giant breakthrough in the industry of phone technology.
In conclusion, everything has two sides, including the technology.
Personally, I believe that it is whether a challenge or a chance, becoming
richer or poorer depending on how people utilize it and create with it.
