INEQUALITY

Income inequality has been making the headlines for a couple of years now, especially with the publication of Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” (I recommend listening to the ebook, by the way – don’t try to slog through the print version).

But the problem is not just income. Here are just a few (of the many more):
– Wealth inequality
– Race inequality
– Gender inequality
– Intelligence inequality
– Social competence inequality

Why have a strong unionized workforce?  So those of us who aren’t lucky enough to be on the up side of all of the above can live decently, too.  And afford all those products the top one-percenters have had made for us by the bottom ten-percenters.
