Is the solution to extreme wealth inequality really — Alaska?
World Economic Forum

A very good article. The prime points:

  • Do NOT penalise productive people (income tax);
  • Do NOT penalise trade (sales tax);
  • Reclaim socially created value (e.g., land values);
  • Penalise the unproductive (taxes on unearned income);

We also need Pigouvian taxes, such as on alcohol, tobacco, pollution, traffic congestion, etc.
