You may have seen John Oliver use the lottery to demonstrate how income inequality works, but why has it recently become more of a problem?  UC Berkeley’s Robert Reich talks about how our recent policies around the estate tax have long term consequences:

Reich has some ideas for solutions to this issue and you can read about them here.

When does that end?
-I’ll let you know.
