Hi Dave Z;
An interesting, but unsurprising, story. It has long been known 
that the capitalist class is socially isolated from other classes.
In effect, they live in their own little world or, if you prefer, 
bubble.  This is becoming even more the case - internationally - 
with gated communities (in some cases protected with armed 
private security forces).  They, know, of course, that inequality 
exists but they rationalize it in various ways (many of which 
are given in the article).  Mainstream (neo-neo-classical) economic 
theory also provides the pretense of a 'scientific'  rationalization' for 
their wealth.  
In solidarity, Jerry
