Excerpt from CGTN -- "There's significant income inequality because wealth tends to be concentrated on very few founders of successful companies, but, at the same time, the fact that California doesn't have a deficit anymore should also be attributed to the fact that some of these founders paid huge taxes to the state of California and, for example, when Facebook made an IPO, suddenly the California budget was balanced... So it's important to look at the benefits of the high technology industry and not just the inequality they produce."
