Hi guys! Good pod.
I wanted to let you know about a book:

http://www.amazon.com/Spirit-Level-Equality-Societies-Stronger/dp/1608190366

You were talking about why the great inequality in America makes for social problems - please read this book. It's an amazing read and even if you just read the Abstract you'll see where they're coming from. The authors look at European and advanced Asian states and the U.S. as a whole as well as U.S. states and compare them, and find that greater social inequality = greater social problems. It's fascinating, and I think it will lend fire to your thoughts of last week, about what causes more social issues in more unequal societies.

If the link doesn't work, it's the Spirit Level, by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett.

Thanks for your great work, and keep it up! I'm in Maine - would love to come down and meet you guys some day. I'd even buy the coffee (on my meager teacher's salary!).
