    Dear MercoPress editor,

    Please kindly give a verbal lashing to the author of this outrageously useless article.

    It also might be helpful to threaten violence against any of your esteemed writers should they too start quoting Gini coefficients which is highly detrimental to the prestige of this esteemed news site.

    Sincerely, Chicureo

    inequality is a direct result of fig policy to make the minority rich (fisheries lottery winners) richer and stronger. taxes could be adjusted to redistribute more of the wealth if fig has the courage to recognize reform is needed.

    Mr. Portman...

    May I ask why you call them windblown Isles carefully predetermined, congenic (almost consogenic) original distribution of fishing rights and licences for a ***“Lottery”***...?

    IMHO, a lottery has equal elements of randomness, chance & luck...
    Elements I don't recall having being present in that 80'es “distribution”...
