Wealth and Income Inequality.

Income and wealth inequality have passed the tipping point.The super rich don’t just have multiple houses, fancier cars, and out-sized travel and entertainment budgets; they rule the world, albeit in many countries in conjunction with authoritarian leaders. It’s long been said that “money talks.” In the case of the super rich, money controls. Robert Reich points out that “America’s billionaires are now worth $5.2 trillion dollars. If merely half of that had been taxed, these people would still be fantastically rich, and America could have brought some of it most pressing problems, like homelessness, under control.
