    Re: Result in social problems

    It's grammatical. It's not good stylistically. Are you stating a timeless truth, an actual occurrence? "Increasing" suggests that it's happening now. If it's current: "Increasing anti-rich sentiments are resulting in social problems and disharmony."
    "Increasing anti-rich sentiments threaten to result in social problems and disharmony."
    "Increasing anti-rich sentiments could result in social problems and disharmony."
