Economics

This is a great article on the growing disparity between the very rich and the more plebeian masses.

Pretty good reading, if a bit long.

An interesting read that finally reduces to "So what?"

I notice from the numbers cited that I was amongst the top 1% during a few moments of my working career. So?

What difference does this all make?

Is equality of result a goal in and of itself?

Who is it that is supposed to determine that for Mr. A to make 10 times what Mr. B makes is "fair" but 100 times or 1000 times is not?

True, very true. I found it to be an interesting read, but so long as we live in a free market system, legal acts that lead to concentration of wealth are just that - legal.

I wasn't trying to incite class warfare. :-)

Heyyy! I was wondering if there is any chance you can make me a LJ Icon if I give you a picture? I have a picture or 2 and wanted it as a LJ icon. If you could help me out please let me know. Either way thanks a lot for reading this. Take care. Later

Read this and then email me. I don't do userpics on weekends, so it'll have to wait until Monday night.
