In this song the maples are upset about the "greedy" oaks and demand equality. Do you see any parallels between this song and policy issues such as anti-discrimination laws, affirmative action, set-asides, etc.? In your discussion be sure to highlight the notions of efficiency and equity/equality and the trade-offs that may exist in achieving these goals.
