    I would not vote for either one because equal income would make poverty for every one and i have voted to get myself out of poverty many times but it does not work.

    Scenario #1 only makes sense if everybody is living in poverty. (Sounds like a Cuban style progressive utopia).

    If everybody has equal income and there is still poverty then it follows that everybody is enjoy equal poverty.

    Both questions are stupid. You cannot abolish either one by the government fiat. It can only be done by the free market.

  4. Dan replied:

    You left out choice 3…..neither, because as long as humans are human we will have both poverty and inequality. They are two sides to the same coin.

    #1 is Communism. #2 is Pure Capitalism. I would vote for #2.
