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!__________________I guess with your definition, that would be true.With your mechanisms cited above, you effectively limit wealth by transferring a larger portion of it to the government. Good job. Now I gather you have a grand plan to redistribute this wealth to the bottom layers?
