Darrell Shimel Jr. Posted 9 months ago Thomas Piketty: New thoughts on capital in the twenty-first century I don't listen to propaganda. I look at the raw data, understand the economic processes. Income inequality comes from a great many things. Some people are smarter, some luckier, many work much harder. I think income inequality, based on effort and capital investments, IS EXCELLENT. Reward the things that we want people to do!!!! Wealth inequality comes from people spending far less than they earn, draining liquidity from the economy, requiring new money be borrowed into existence to replace it. You are completely wrong about inflation. We had to go off Brenton Woods in 1971 because we had embraced global free trade and needed a floating exchange rate. Yes, that is bad, but it did not cause inequality. Inequality was at its worst in the 1800s, when we were on the gold standard and had balanced foreign trade. You are so blinded by your obsession with inflation that you blame it for everything, and cannot see that problems were much worse when there was no inflation.
