Thanks for this, really interesting.

In South Africa essentially 50% of all people live at or under the breadline, with a taxable populace of let’s say 10% of the population. How do you apply what you suggest to this kind of environment, or are there alternatives that makes more sense?

So, first-world countries, with <10% poverty can actually address poverty, while developing countries are actually reliant on A) external countries or b) getting themselves out of poverty as there’s not enough (well-spent) tax money going around.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
