I don't think there is anything wrong withunequality of wealth
in any society, as long as anyone is given an equal OPPORTUNITY
As a matter of fact, if the wealth is garantteed to be
evenly distributed to every member of the society, it would
have simply eliminated any incentive for innovation, hard working,
risk taking, etc., anything that addes value and wealth to
The focus should be on fairness in terms of opportunity, not fairness
in terms of results.

: China's disparities surpass those of the United States and Western Europe,
: though they do not approach the extremes of Latin America."
