HerodotusIn a paper entitled, "The third industrial revolutioN" the paper sez: this study is of a series commissioned by the American Enterprise Institute on trends in the level and distribution of U.S. wages, income, wealth, consumption and other measures of material welfare. The issues addressed in the series involve much more than dry statistics (for which we recommend a topical slave to be applied in a circular motion, three times daily) they touch on fundamental aspirations of the American people -- material progress, widel shared prosperity, and just reward for individual effort -- and affect popular understanding of the successesses and shortcomings of the private market economy and of pariticular government policies. For these reasons, discussions of "economic in-equality" in the media and political debate are often parital and partisan as well as superficial. And remember, Jesus wants you to buy a PC - after all, do you think that *he* would use a mac?
