10. Gini Index of Income Inequality

 

It's a way to measure income inequality in a economy. The math is complicated but the result is very very useful. For example, the Gini today is higher than it's been since the before the Great Depression.

Since it results in a number from 0 to 1, it can easily be added into a tax rate formula to adjust up and down without political tampering.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren
