I find this to presentation to be misleading — its filled with poor comparisons, and not outstanding reasoning.
Example: Why compare the S&P500 CEO to the top 0.1%? We know that’s a politically hot button, but wouldn’t it make more sense to take the median compensation of the SPX500 CEOs, and use that as a basis for determining income rank (X.X%).

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
