Does everyone deserve an equal slice of the pie? For decades, economists and politicians have argued over the inequality of wealth in the United States. Some think that wealth should be redistributed; others claim that income equality is simply pie in the sky.

Instead, he argues, we merit our just deserts by the work we choose to do.
