Why Aren’t They Upset About Hollywood’s Obscene Wealth?by Adam Selene
As always, I enjoy reading Thomas Sowell. Many times I don’t agree with him, he is much more socially conservative than I am. But, economically, I rarely disagree. And his most recent piece in the National Review is no exception. It’s on income inequality and he makes some good points in it. But the best one comes before the closer. In fact, I tend to think it should have been his closer.
It is also worth noting that the people who are said to be earning “obscene” amounts of money are usually corporate executives. There is no such outrage whipped up when Hollywood movie stars make some multiple of what most corporate executives make.
How come my progressive, left wing friends aren’t outraged by Oprah’s income? Inquiring minds want to know.
