In the United States, Republican voters shown how wealth is spread in the
US and in Sweden, but not told which set of figures described which country,
thought the Swedish distribution better. US voters overall chose as ideal
a wealth distribution that was more equal than Sweden’s. (In Sweden, the
top 20% of earners get four times the lowest earning 20%; in the US the
difference is eight times.)
Don\’t you think that people attempting to entirely reorganise the economy should know the difference between wealth and income?
