Income Inequality

a: Criticizing income inequality ~
b: Complaining that a computer carries a higher price

What: "Income inequality is an effect. The cause is the difference in people's economic production. Criticizing income inequality is like complaining that a computer carries a higher price than a paper clip. Price reflects an object's market value--and the money someone earns reflects the market value of his work."
