Do the poor need the rich or the rich need the poor?

If you have ever thought about this phenomenon, you would know it’s a co-dependency that makes the economy go round. The rich need the poor to employ and the poor need the rich to be employed by. Of course, this arrangement doesn’t work in symbiosis of dignity or economics, it somehow just works with huge disparity in societies as a prejudiced outcome.

However, I am not talking about the economic interdependence of the rich and the poor or putting capitalism versus socialism. I am talking about the social reliance between them, the hierarchical dependency of the rich upon the poor and vice versa. And in this regard, surprising as it may sound, it’s the rich who stand out starkly needy and wanting.
