Separate inequality, opportunity issues

LIKE any immigrant, I'm optimistic about the United States.
The crash will recede, confidence will come back and stronger growth will resume. The zeal of ordinary Americans to work hard and prosper will prevail over the weary incompetence of the political class.
If I wanted to be pessimistic, though, I know what I'd be dwelling on right now: the new preoccupation with inequality.
