"In Defense Of Prosperous Inequality"

Financial equality or wealth creation? What would you prefer our economic leaders optimize for? (TechCrunch):

There is an important role for the government to provide safety nets and job training, but indirectly blaming innovators isn’t a productive message.

But, financial equality has never been, and will never be, a goal of the Internet economy. The goal is wealth creation. For those who can now access world-class professors and medical treatment anywhere in the world, Silicon Valley has lived up to its promise.
What is sometimes depressing is that I know there is not an insignificant number of people who believe we should optimize our societies for financial equality.

I'd prefer not to have "economic leaders".

I'd prefer to have hard working people that left other hard working people alone.
