I thought his idea was brilliant.
Having said that, his assumption is that all wealth is earned.
I’ve got no problem with people who earned their shekels. I’ve got a big problem with organizations who stack the deck by having the laws changed to favor their ‘capital generation’. E.g. Enron, repackaged mortgage securities, medical insurance companies routinely denying coverage regardless of validity because a percentage will not pursue claims, chickenhawks advocating for war to benefit their contributors, etc.
The country and world would be better off if wealth was created as a result of value produced, instead of legal card tricks and financial slight of hand.
Much wealth is earned, much is not. I wish it all was.
