PBS is probably regretting asking Richard Epstein his opinions, but a lesson is to be learned.

Watch it.

They need to learn that you can't have income equality of you are not willing to actually have a job and work.

yeah you lazy welfare queens, you could have all the income equality you want if you would just shut up and accept stagnant wages at this part time job with no benefits

At no point in history has income inequality been "resolved".

Some countries have tried...and they killed millions trying.

Cantrell would have us believe that all people are basically good and nobody just sits on welfare collecting a check... just like hard core right wingers would have us believe that all corporations are good and always look out for the public's best interest. When in fact the truth is directly in the middle of that... there are tons of sorry ass people that do nothing but live off the gov't dole and lots and lots of greedy ass corporations.

Truth is there's plenty of blame to go around.

that's a pretty awesome fallacious argument you have there but on the plus side now i don't have to worry about catching this week's south park since i just reached my "the problem is actually directly in the middle" bullshit quota

boo freaking hoo. dont like your wages, go back to school, wait tables whatever and make it happen.
dont like that idea, get small biz loans and start your own biz and pay people what you think is equal and fair.
dont like that? run for Congress and change the laws.
don't like that? start your own Mosquito Coast.

same as you. many go to colleges and pile on debt THEN after that go to work.
been going on for a long time. many should rethink that anthropology degree.

dont take a job that you think the wages suck. or, take that job and live within or below your means and have zero debt.

or find ways to make more money. nobody owes anybody a thing out there.

where were some of these folks during the 90's and money was falling out of the sky? no complaints then.

Kinda sad to say this but if people knew how to save money back when they were making boatloads in the 90s maybe not tons but at least a lot of people would still own their house, and not be living in a 2 bedroom apt and paying rent with unemployment.

You mean you can't have three cars, a mortgage, a boat and 5 credit cards maxed out and still be OK? What, this is America, we're supposed to get everything we want... :rolleyes:

A LOT of people have no clue what "living within your means" is.

Quick survey...

Does anyone really believe that people that took out exhorbitant mortgages when real estate was booming should have been personally bailed out?



If you answer yes...then you're hopeless.

If you answer no...then what's the difference in someone taking out exhorbitant student loans in a depressed employment market.
