Income inequality is not some accident of nature. It is driven by firms such as Goldman Sachs, HSBC and the other behemoths which game the financial system to their own benefit. I really don't expect anyone at Davos to care about income inequality when their actions as business leaders are what has created income inequality. If banks stopped squeezing every nickle of fees from the average joe, inequality would decline along with corporate profit. If CEOs weren't paid 700x the average worker there would be less inequality. It is naive at best to expect the fox the save the hens.
