    High Gini indices correspond to lower economic growth and increased social unrest.

    We're going to start spending a lot of money fighting each other while our economy goes down the tubes. That's not good for anyone who has to live here.

    It's not even the 1%. It's the 0.01% who win in those circumstances.

      I wondered what High Gini meant.  

      I understand what you are saying. Part of me, says, good let some of them (1%) feel what we have felt.  But, I got a feeling that they want feel exactly what the 99% feels, just like the high tide didn't raise all ships.
