““Inequality of the kind we are experiencing is bad for individuals, bad for society, bad for democracy,” she said…Mrs. Clinton suggested possible fixes like changes in taxation, compensation and efforts by both government and business to subsidize housing.

“Mrs. Clinton said that social media, and Twitter in particular, played a major role in the toppling of the Mubarak government in Egypt. But she said she was disappointed that many of the people who used social media tools during the uprising then shunned organized politics.

“Social media “is not a substitute for real-life action,” she said. “The political victory will go to the most organized force…There is no doubt that social media in itself has an enormous effect, but you can’t leave it there.””
