So how do you make wealth equal anyway?

Wanting less inequality is not the same as wanting to "make wealth equal."

To reduce inequality, we could do a number of things such as increasing estate taxes; adding a couplefew higher tax brackets for incomes in the millions; allowing only the first, say, million bucks per employee compensation to be tax-deductible to a company (including all benefits such as deferred compensation and stock options); implementing universal health care such as the French or Swiss systems; reinstating sensible financial regulations like Glass-Steagle.

While I'm wishing, I'd love to get more of those 6% CDs I bought just a few years ago which have all now expired!
