The Fallacy Of So-called "Income Equality"

A generation ago, perhaps even just a few years ago, worry about high or rising income inequality stemmed mainly from a belief that it is unfair. In recent years the source of apprehension has shifted. The dominant concern now is that inequality may have harmful effects on a range of outcomes we value, from education to health to economic growth to happiness to democracy and more. Does it?

This analysis answers the question.

Secondary question: Is it fair that my net worth keeps increasing, even though I am spending money, just to live on? (this was BEFORE I started collecting Disability)
