In other words, if everybody earned the same amount of money, who would be the ones becoming architects, doctors, university professors? Could it be that we'd get a scenario where they'd end up being the same people as now?
Absolutely not. I love what I am studying, and I love the idea of eventually working as a doctor. But if I, as a future doctor, were to earn as much as a nurse, I would become a nurse. And this isn't the best example, because nurses have Higher Educations too.
Different incomes exist for a reason, but that doesn't mean the distribution and the differences are well applied.
some of you are missing the point. the video isn't proposing complete wealth equality. it's complaining about what they and I perceive as an extreme wealth inequality. extreme enough to the point one can regard it as unfair.
True. But what are your suggestions for change? This curve is now very difficult to change because it's a snowball, really.
