Suppose that the only effective way to increase the income/wealth of those in the bottom quintile by 50 percent is to permit the the income/wealth of the top quintile to increase by 200 percent. I'll bet there are millions of people-mostly rich Progressives-who would reject that offer. I think they'd much rather see the top quintile income/wealth drop by 50%, even if the result was a drop of 10% in the bottom quintile. That would actually DECREASE income inequality-by making EVERYONE suffer-a perfect Liberal/Progressive outcome!
