A GOP Lawmaker Explains Why Inequality Is Not Bad
A GOP lawmaker gives his reasons for opposing efforts to deal with inequality in Minnesota. It is simply his version of trickle down theory. The real reason for this post is that six slides are included in the article which provide a good analysis of the relationship between inequality and social mobility. American's place a high value on social mobility, but many do not appreciate the impact that growing inequality has on social mobility. Inequality is greater in America than it is in many other countries and the slides show how it has affected social mobility.
