Jamie123 Posted March 21 Report Share Posted March 21 The Argument: It's not fair that Bill Gates has so much money. I have hardly any at all! (Boo hoo.) He should give some of it to me. After all, it wouldn't make the slightest difference to him if he gave me a million bucks, but it would make a lot of difference to me. Isn't it unfair of him to keep it? The Rebuttal: Why you in particular? Why not me? .... Or me? ... Or me? HEY, I WANT SOME OF IT TOO!!! (times eight billion) The Outcome: Bill Gates is penniless, and everyone else is now 113B/8B=$14 richer. The Moral: I feel it has something to do with "breaking Zipf's law", but I'm not sure...
