One of the best articles on inequality I've read in some time.

Consider:

  • Depending on how you measure, you come up with radically different sorts.
    • Sort by Wealth - Sweden become less equal than Britain
    • Sort by Income
    • Sort by consumption - Bill Gates has millions but he doesn't eat millions of meals or own millions of cars
  • Assortive Mating:  Modern society favors the intelligent.  Smart people now marry smart people and have smart kids - furthering inequality of innate (and nutured) talent.
