Pareto Principle v. Philanthropy v. Mobility

I read an interesting piece in this week’s New York magazine, entitled: The Have Lots and the Have Nots”.

The premise was to expound upon the disparity of wealth in New York and to fairly try to depict, is the existence of such vast wealth a bonus or a negative or is it at least a positive if it helps one person?

I don’t know. I know that we may feel we don’t need to help fellow adults, hey, they have the same opportunity as everyone else to get ahead right? But then some feel we have an obligation to help the children of those same adults because the children don’t have much of a chance to get ahead.

Then again, today’s adults were yesterday’s children and so on.
