“A few people are objecting to the metaphor but it seems to me that they've missed the point; which is that if you structure your group in such a way as to have such wide inequality, then outcomes are less than optimal for many members of the group, and the efficiency of the whole group is actually reduced.
As a few of the commenters have pointed out, reorganising the tramping group would have led to a better outcome for all. This actually shows the strength of the analogy: who would organise a tramping group like the people in the strip?” — Geoffrey Doube
