    Probably the best thing that could have been done for income inequality would have been to nationalize the failing big banks, break them up and reprivatize them under Glass-Steagall like rules.  Which was certainly an option open to the administration.  If the Wall Street zillionaires had been left holding the bag for their crimes, they wouldn't have the power they do today.  That would have opened up a lot of possibilities we don't have now
