The article focuses on the issue of the income inequality in the U.S., as raised by economist Paul Krugman. Krugman has been decrying increases in income inequality for many years now. In seeking explanations for the widening spread of incomes during the last four decades, researchers have focused on broad structural changes in the economy and Krugman argues that these explanations are insufficient. He views the rise of inequality as a consequence of economic regress.
