Open Thread

So this guy on Charlie Rose thinks the last decade has been the most egalitarian time ever on earth. He thinks people in the US should be happy that the incomes in so much of the world have risen and have become more equal throughout the world. Why would Americans complain about that? Perhaps this or this is one of the reasons? Or perhaps the decade could have been even more egalitarian if some of what went to those greedy CEOs could have been spent on building a better safety net under the Americans who were outsourcing their jobs so they could buy lots more cheap stuff in WalMart?

Okay, that's my rant. What's your rant, or topic to share?
