Snapshots leave more to the imagination than movies. This is certainly the case when it comes to measuring and understanding inequality. Whether the degree of inequality in a society is “too high” or “too low” is hard to say, and therefore it is hard to imagine what the public policy implications should be. How did it arise? What will happen to it in the future? These seem to be reasonable questions to ask in trying to interpret a picture taken at a particular point in time.
