The Left thinks that inequality is the biggest economic problem in America. They think that if inequality could be solved, the world would be a better place.
This completely misses the point. The Left will never be able to create total equality in an economy full of diverse people. Every person in America has unique skills and talents. Everyone wants to prosper. Every individual has the capability to create economic value in their own way.
The way to achieve prosperity for as many people as possible is not to make everyone equal, but rather to unleash each individual’s talents.
This is the beauty of free markets. Markets give people the opportunity to participate in the economy in unique and personalized ways.
In order to create prosperity over the long-term, the goal must not be to achieve equality, but to embrace the diversity of talents that we have.
