Hi Ian,

With the above qualification, I don't have a problem with your claim
that income distribution follows a power-law.  I would say, though,
that a better way to put it is that income distribution _tends_ to
follow a power-law.

Perhaps we understand the meaning of 'laws' in political economy

In solidarity, Jerry
