Actually, no I haven't. Can you summarize?

It would be better if you actually watched it. It's short, and very clear.

But if you insist on not watching: the data shows that inequity between nations is much less important than inequity within nations. Nations that have less than we do, but have lower levels of inequity, fare better on almost every measure...and the really interesting thing is that this "faring better" includes those at the top levels of income. That is, those at the top levels of income in America are worse off than those at the top levels of income in more equitable countries.

Food for thought.
