Can I haz a brain here (at least a bronze one, waiting for it to be less US-centric to raise, to begin)?

Easy to read + sourced -> winner in my book. Of course, I might be biaised because of my leftist slant, so I await comments.--dx (talk) 09:56, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

I agree, this is brilliant stuff here! ;) AugustusCaesar (talk) 14:39, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Possible Bug[edit]

I would like to report a possible bug. The citation 4 is not visible in the article when I use safari, although second part of the citation in the citation/footnote section of article is visible. Although I was considering deleting that segment and its citation because Pete Seeger died, but I probably would have just mentioned that he died instead. --Corpse in the bed (talk) 22:12, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Peter Singer is a different person from Peter Seeger. He's a prominent utilitarian philosopher, and he is very much alive. Not sure about your bug, it looks fine to me in Chrome. I'll test it in Safari. AugustusCaesar (talk) 22:22, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Just looked at the article in Safari and I can see both parts of the citation just fine. AugustusCaesar (talk) 22:25, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Oh I misread that Pete thing (obviously). And I see it (the citation thing) now! Maybe it was just on the next line all by itself the entire time on my window.Corpse in the bed (talk) 01:18, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Anon's deletion suggestion[edit]

This and the income inequality article may look similar, but wealth and income inequality measure two totally different things. Also, the actual content of both articles (if you look past the introductions) does not seem to overlap. Additionally the income inequality article has almost no references of any substance, while I've worked hard to put some solid ones here. I think it would be more constructive to eventually merge both articles into one more accurately titled "Economic Inequality". AugustusCaesar (talk) 08:22, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
