L’école de Chicago au sujet des politiques égalitaires:

"It is a great mistake to make equality of result a policy goal, because egalitarian legislation can kill incentives to improve.

Punishing the rich is self defeating, even for the poor striving to make their way. Equality of opportunity, however, is different. It is something everyone merits by their very dignity as a human being. Thus should a nation strive for quality educational institutions, institute a limited inheritance tax, and otherwise assist those who, through no fault of their own, lack the means to gain entry into the division of labor.

Once these institutions are in place, we will find that the forces of market competition will achieve egalitarian goals through predominantly voluntary means."
