A SHORT ADDENDUM TO THE INCOME AND WEALTH INEQUALITY DISCUSSION


Video Clips

I thought it worthwhile to post Nick Hanauer's Ted Talk where he discusses income inequality and the current state of our economy.   Don't forget, this is a rich guy who doesn't believe that our current social and economic structure is in our (let's say us ordinary Americans) best interests.  He knows from whence he speaks.


In addition, here's a short clip from a recent PBS NewsHour segment where a conservative economist, Richard Epstein, disagrees with Hanauer's analysis.  I find it interesting (if not hilarious) that, in the end, Epstein simply dismisses Hanauer as "not knowing what he's talking about."

So there you go.
