AskProfWolff: Why Capitalist Inequality Matters

A Patron of Economic Update asks: "My dad is very conservative and when I said that capitalism promotes too much inequality he responded 'I don’t care. Inequality doesn’t matter.' I’m wondering if you have a response besides the morality of inequality and a way to convince someone inequality is bad economically."

This is Professor Richard Wolff's video response.
