Ministry if Irony: UC Berkeley ‘income inequality’ Experts Filthy Rich

It pays well to preach about inequality, very well indeed.

Several UC Berkeley economics professors who support “income inequality” research each earn more than $300,000 a year, putting them in the top 2 percent of the public university’s salary distribution, according to a recent report by a nonpartisan California think tank.

The report pointed out that the prominent scholars leading or advising the Cal Berkeley Center for Equitable Growth are richly compensated as professors, even as the center seeks to research ways to create economic growth that is “fairly shared,” the center’s website states.

1 "One cannot research income inequality
if there is not control group to be unequal.
They are making great sacrifice here
and clearly, Howie, you hate science."
-- Professor Emmanuel Saez, probably

2 Not to worry, when the 'constitutional reform' happens in America there will be a penalty for these freedom stealing leftists of 'Put your money where your mouth is' redistribution of THEIR wealth (hardly a penalty though as thats what they say they want for everyone, no? Its just giving them what they want, isnt it ?)

You'd think that those leftist profs would refuse those $300K salaries, wouldnt you, as 'unfair' and such ?? And with the price of education these days shouldnt that be their duty ??

Fraud and perpetrating their fraud and miseducation on their students. I can see some adjustments needed for this situation.

3 The irony that entertains me is that the wee delicate snowflakes that "buy" this shite, are going into deep debt buying this shite.
And it will NOT get them a job!

6 It's funny how these UC professors want administrative support--someone to keep their calendars, process their travel reimbursements, etc--but refuse to pay for it out of their research funds. No, the California taxpayers should be forced to foot the bill for that.
