Why capitalism has nothing to do with supply and demand - Nick Hanauer
Few domestic issues generate levels of emotion and arguments with more passion and fury than the vital real-life issues of income inequality and wealth distribution within the USA. It's simple, irrefutable math no matter what side you choose to believe -- the middle class, which grew out of the WWII, has been losing economic ground year after year for the past several decades. That's the indisputable math - but what are the causes and, more importantly, what are the potential remedies if any do, in fact, exist.
