Quote:

“Indeed, the distribution of wealth is too important an issue to be left to economists, sociologists, historians, and philosophers. It is of interest to everyone, and that is a good thing. The concrete, physical reality of inequality is visible to the naked eye and naturally inspires sharp but contradictory political judgements.”

This is an eye-opener to better understand the income inequality that is so prevalent in our society today and how to democratize wealth that will affect our future and the next generation.
