It is possible to successfully tolerate income inequality in societies where even the poorest people are rich by historical standards. Inequality only leads to strong antipathy and then instability where massive numbers of people are kept in impoverished conditions. Provided the people at the bottom have McDonalds, iPhones, entertainment etc they will accept that people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet have most of the money.

I DETEST anyone who thinks that correlation does not mean causation is a smart comment. Correlation is literally the only way we can establish causation. Learn about Hume's problem of induction. We need to give reasons why they could PLAUSIBLY be correlated or PROBABLY, like in this case which is so blindingly easy to do, (people with higher incomes have more books at home, the kids re exposed to more vocabulary, they are going to better schools especially in the US where schools are funded by property taxes in the school's neighboorhood etc. etc.) it's just so blindingly obvious that pointing that out adds nothing to the conversation. The reason it annoys me is that it has become SUCH a common quip by people who think they are intelligent.
