Thomas Sowell is Back Again to Discuss His Book Wealth, Poverty, and Politics

Hoover Institution fellow Thomas Sowell discusses inequality and how it is part of the human condition.

Sowell notes that political and ideological struggles have led to a dangerous confusion about income inequality in America. We cannot properly understand inequality if we focus on the distribution of wealth and ignore wealth production factors such as geography, demography, and culture. What is important is not inequality but human capital; once human capital is unleashed it creates an enormous amount of wealth for people of all classes. In addition there needs to be a sense of humility and gratitude for the generations that have gone before us for the prosperity we have today.

  1. Han er en klog mand. For vi er jo ikke ens, og regeringerne skal ikke forsøge at gøre os det. Det fører bare til ulykke. Hvad regeringerne skal, er at gøre os alle så lykkelitge som muligt med de forudsætninger, vi nu engang har. Og det mål når man bedst, med arbejde, der spænder buen hårdest muligt, til hver af os. Den store lykke ved at stå op hver morgen, og komme træt hjem om aftenen efter en veloverstået dag, hvor man gjorde gavn.
