Perceptions of income inequality is really about consumption inequality

We observe more obesity in lower income people and a higher prevalence of obesity in less affluent communities. They may not be actively concerned about the debate of income inequality (of the very rich having more than the rich), but they are sharing in the same culture that prizes experiences of wealth over other experiences. The very rich satisfy that need with their wealth. The merely rich satisfy that need through income-supported debts. Many of the rest find satisfaction of this need through their food in elaborate creations or in bountiful quantities (if not both).
