Editor’s highlights  Around the world inequality is once again becoming an issue. China’s president, Britain’s prime minister, America’s second-richest man and the head of the International Monetary Fund have all worried, loudly and publicly, about the dangers of a rising gap between the rich and the rest.

In our cover leader, we argue much of the recent hand-wringing about widening inequality is based on sloppy thinking. In many cases it is part of a meritocratic process.
