Income inequality is now a favorite slogan of liberals trying to push our envy button for their political gain. They imply things just aren't fair and government should fix that.
In fact, that approach is the problem. The politicization of the economy has led to an economy based less on individual merit, hard work and contribution to society, and more on government policy, public spending and political connections.
Now that's what I call unfair! And our society and economy have gotten worse as a result.
