In the Fraser Institute's latest adventure into the fun and exciting world of comparing apples to oranges, the right-wing think tank discovers that some countries with dictators and/or widespread corruption have less inequality than some countries operating under laissez-faire capitalism.

So, the Fraser Institute wonders: maybe inequality isn't such a bad thing after all?

"When deciding how much any society should worry about inequality," says Fraser Institute executive vice-president Jason Clemens, "citizens should first understand the way income and wealth are earned."

And to explore this mystery in greater detail, the Fraser Institute compares Lululemon, maker of "yoga-inspired clothing," with "authoritarian leaders and dictators," such as former Indonesian strongman Suharto.
