Matthew effect, polarization phenomenon
The Matthew effect refers to a phenomenon in which the strong become stronger and the weak become weaker. These phenomena are widely used in psychology, education, finance, and science in society. The Matthew effect is also the main term commonly used by sociologists and economists. The social phenomenon they reflect refers to the very serious polarization, the rich get richer, and the poor poorer. The name is mainly derived from a fable in the New Testament Matthew. If there is something, we will give it to him twice and make him extra. But no, even all his things have to be snatched. The Matthew effect coincides with the way of balance. It is very similar to the twenty-eight rule, and it is also a very important natural law. The ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu once put forward a similar thought: "The way of the heavens is more than the damage and the insufficiency is made up. The way of the man is not the same, and the damage is not enough to give the more.
