Did wealthy lifespans increase or did poorer lifespans decrease? (Or both?) - seems yo be important but I can’t access article to confirm.

The fact that a field has been so committed to some underlying wrong principles that many of them know are wrong because patronage by the ultra-rich props it up to justify their ludicrous wealth is quite the scam. George Mason and anything coming out of there is the worst.

BA doesn't note here economics focused on 'skill-intensive tech change' as primary reason for widening inequality, which was supposed to incentivize human capital investment and thereby correct itself. So, yes, economics was apologetics.

Poor people "deserve" to be poor. Will the apologists also say that poor people deserve to die?
