text Wealth as a Problem - by Will Hutton
The wealth of others has become more a problem than an incentive. Capital is blind, Thomas Piketty says. Capital grows faster than the economy. Differences in wealth are inherent in capitalism but do not represent a natural law. A society can accept them or act against them. Piketty shows how easy it is for the rich to evade taxation. Piketty proposes bold solutions: a top tax rate up to 80 percent, an effective inheritance tax and a global wealth tax.
