I’ve been trying to get this video to embed on my post, but it just isn’t happening. So here’s a link to it instead. Professor Epstein was one of my law school professors, and he is a brilliant man with a different outlook on mnay topics. I thought his discussion of the benefits of income inequality is first-rate, and even though this clip is a little long (8+ minutes), it’s worth listening to in order to hear a different view of wealth distribution. I particularly like his observation about equality of opportunity as opposed to equality of outcome.
It’s also fun to watch because he absolutely runs circles around the interviewer. I’m not sure the interviewer yet knows what hit him!
