Framing 'Inequality'

Framing the discussion in terms of economic inequality obscures the growth of government size and power that has accompanied the growth of economic inequality.

Growing concentration of power is the problem. A serious discussion must not ignore that, if left unchecked, the biggest crocodile (the government) will eventually devour the others. In that sense, today's situation is worse than what Reagan faced in 1980.
