I was Googling for something else and found this 2005 Robert Atkinson article about inequality:

While there is considerable agreement among economists over what has happened, there is much less consensus over why inequality has worsened, whether it is a problem and what, if anything, governments should do to address it. Many on the right see growing inequities as actually a spur to growth. Many on the left blame the New Economy's dynamism and competition and pursue a Don Quixote-like effort to resurrect the old economy.



New Economy aside, I think Atkinson should abandon his quixotic effort to convince us that "Don Quixote-like" is a phrase people should be using.

We want to hear what you think about this article. Submit a letter to the editor or write to letters@theatlantic.com.
