12. Slightly Disagree

I may just be splitting hairs and the article seemed to mention this, but it is not the fortunes of billionaires that is preventing an end to poverty it is low wages. If people were paid more there would be less inequality and poverty.

The United States government should end carried interest for hedge fund managers and anyone else who can use the practice. Then lawmakers should seek to increase the wages of at least low income workers.
