  •  80% tax on super rich / spend it / then... (9+ / 0-)

    Seems to me the only way to CHANGE the permanent situation we see is to impose an 80% or 90% tax on all earnings above one very high level (similar to the approach in the 1930s), spend those new revenues on infrastructure, education and bolstering all benefit funds, then put a lot of money into promotion of employee-owned businesses, co-op probably. Then you have jobs, and change, and progress.

    Might take some really big marches to make that politically possible. Nevertheless ...

    Surely nobody thinks the present system/situation will ever change.
