We've all heard the story. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer. The American Dream has all but vanished, obliterated by astounding income inequality. To save the American Dream, we're told that we need to fight inequality through tax hikes, wealth redistribution schemes, and a far higher minimum wage.
But what if that's wrong? What if the real threat to the American Dream isn't rising income inequality-but an all-out war on success? In Equal Is Unfair, Don Watkins and Yaron Brook reveal why:
• CEOs make so much money-and deserve to
• The minimum wage hurts the people it purports to help
• Middle-class stagnation is a myth
• Sweden's history reveals the dangers of forced equality
Are the critics of inequality really trying to make America a place where anyone can succeed-or are they trying to tear down the successful?
