Thomas Sowell on the Myths of Economic Inequality

Dec 3, 2018 Hoover Institution

Recorded on November 15, 2018
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS5WYp5xmvI

Thomas Sowell discusses economic inequality, racial inequality, and the myths that have continued to falsely describe the system of poverty among different racial and economic classes. He explains the economic theories behind these pervasive myths and proposes fact-based solutions for seemingly intractable situations.

One word could describe it all: ''CHOLERIC'' attitude, most people from the southern part of the globe are very emotional and act to it. 

I have linked to Thomas Sowell many times and have read half-a-dozen or more of his books.

Intellectuals and Society (Basic Books, rev. ed., 2012) is probably his best.

Sadly, it's in concern for most politicians to generate current chaotic situations to control everyone to their personal schemes.

A French University in Quebec hired an editor to check all student essays for hidden "racist" words in their homework before it gets delivered to the teacher.... I wonder how far they will go with these kind of NAZI laws?

In the interests of fairness, perhaps anyone using the word 'colonialist', certainly the way it's been used recently, should be declared a racist.
