    Just Deserts? Do the 1 Percent Deserve their Wealth?

    Serious points off for spelling error in the headline, which is repeated in the article text.

    Mankiw makes the same mistake. Apparently this mistake is widespread in the field of economics.

    .
    Those who have visited certain European countries where tipping is not expected, and who have experienced the service there, might have a different view on the effectiveness of tipping.

    I tend bar/wait tables/drive the beer cart at a local golf course. I’d be thrilled beyond belief to have dependable, steady income. But then they’d just drop us to straight minimum wage, and my pay would be next to useless again. Given how my workplace treated the backdating of insurance for the ACA (limiting the Food and Bev employees to 120 hrs/month), I can only be cynical about it. And every other restaurant out there. They’re all the same, and I’ve worked in enough of them.
