Loksins rakst ég á hagfræðibók sem vísar í röksemdafærslu sem ég hef haldið á lofti í mörg ár, en flestir virðast líta fram hjá:
There is a second, more pragmatic, concern about rising income inequality. Might the gap between rich and poor -- ethics aside -- become large enough that it begins to inhibit economic growth? Is there a point at which income inequality stops motivating us to work harder and becomes counterproductive? The poor might become disenfranchised to the point that they reject important political and economic institutions, such as property rights or the rule of law. -- Charles Wheelan, Naked Economics (2002)
Mjög mikilvæg rök fyrir velferðarríkinu.
