He said: “We have a fundamental imbalance of wealth that is certainly unprecedented in history.”
Cuomo is trying to unseat Republican incumbent, Governor George Pataki. Cuomo is also the son of the former governor Mario Cuomo.
Cuomo said the economy could not return to the way it was between 2000 and 2007 without the government intervening, NYT says.
