These advocates point to notions of fairness and admit to twinges of guilt, but the core concern driving all of them — left, right and libertarian — is a belief that the economy doesn’t function efficiently when the wealth gap is wide. They are proposing solutions that range from pressuring fellow entrepreneurs to pay workers more to simply giving their money back to the government to redistribute.
I find it a bit disturbing, albeit ineffective, that the ultra-rich are having to spearhead reform to close the income gap.
What I don't understand is why they make no difference. These guys got enough dough to drive policy - so what's the hold up?
