Macrogeography and income fronts (1965)

ID: 201410230209

Warntz introduced the concept of social mass: 'Whatever is artificially produced or is transported for social purposes is social mass.' Today we talk about 'ecological footprint'.
The USA fall for Piketty's book and that's all right.

But perhaps the Americans should read their own intellectuals more often. For example the writings of late William Warntz on income distribution. Inequality should not be a shock, it was always there.
Here are some of his best works on the subject:
