Video: Understanding American Inequality

This video doesn't attempt to explain the reasons behind inequality, merely the level it has reached. In modern political rhetoric, in the US and in most western countries, there is a great deal of talk about 'fairness' toward the very wealthy. They have earned their money so why shouldn't they keep it. There is very little conversation, in the halls of power, about the fairness of a CEO earning in an hour what the company's average employee makes in a month.
