From Aaron: Most of the discussion should be about why inequality is bad for society.  Is it just from increased levels of stress? Will people even believe you if you tell them that inequality leads to stress which leads to more cardiovascular disease? Are we doing a disservice to impoverished groups by saying that poverty doesn't matter? But if you talk about the impact of poverty, and what we see in the South Bronx, can other Americans relate to these issues?
