This nation is seeing a disproportionate amount of income going to the wealthy. Which could lead to economic disaster.

I will debate that income inequality is inevitable and it pays people for their hard work.

First, I'd like to thank you for taking up this debate. I'd like to begin by rebutting your argument that it pays for people's hard work. This statement just plain wrong, hard work can be played for without hoarding the cash for yourself. With this nation's poor being played less and less and the rich being payed more and more the current ratio of 256:1 is unacceptable and it's selfish and greedy. For forty-years the average was around 50:1. People can be rewarded without being impoverished. Also towards your other point, it's not inevitable. It can be put off by not repealing wall street regulation and reinstating legislation such as Glass-Stegall.
