    This is an interesting take on inequality. However wages are not the only factor in terms of quality of life – in more unequal cities, housing, transport, childcare and food costs are likely to be higher – reducing quality of life, regardless of slightly higher wages.

    What also chimes is that, with the US experiment, a benefit would likely to have arisen from the migrants move from mono tenure, down trodden and perhaps ghetto-ised areas. Of course this is going to benefit those who leave – but inequality is what would have created the ghettos in the first place!
