A Libertarian take on Inequality


Make sure to check out Alex’s Reading List

You’ll hear a lot from people on the left about inequality being some big injustice. This is a big oversimplification, and many questions, such as the following, must be asked:

How do you measure inequality: pre-tax, or after-tax?

Why is it a problem?

What causes it, and are all the causes bad?
