No. The laymen goal of removing the income gap (a consequence with a clear root-cause) is a grand denial of a meritocracy, in which there will always be a difference between the haves and have-nots.
Now I hasten to add that the kind of capitalism we promulgate (one regressive to evolution), and void of the most rudimentary compliance to a modern interpretation of freedom, by design creates a very narrow bell-curve of merit, and therefore systematically casts aside anyone not willing to submit to its enslavement.
When we subjugate capitalism to a relativity theory of freedom, the bell-curve of merit will change, tipping the scale to what truly matters: production to strengthen our evolution, rather than finance for finance sake. Such will for sure, yield a wider distribution of monetary gains with more people lifted out of poverty, yet not necessarily eliminate the gap.
The operating systems of humanity are fundamentally flawed, a reason why I decided to reinvent them.
