Inequality in large social systems

Inequality occurs in large and unconstrained social systems for the same reasons stop-and-go traffic occurs on busy roads, not because it is anyone's goal, but because it is a reliable property that emerges from the normal functioning of the system. (Power Laws, Weblogs, and Inequality)

I wonder if nomadlife traffic has a power distribution?
