Update: August 14
Harold Meyerson has an op-ed on p. A17 of the Washington Post, Thursday, August 14, 2014, "A case for attacking economic inequality", link here. Online, the title is "Economic inequality, not just wages at the bottom, needs to be addressed". Meyerson asks, "Why go after the 1 percent?" He says that the tendency in business toward shareholder capitalism, to allow shareholders to demand their profits immediately and in the short term, rather than invest further in productivity and raising livings standards for everyone, especially in older legacy industries, is the problem. This sounds like the "capital v. wages" argument of Thomas Piketty's book "Capital" (July 22, 2014 in Book reviews).
