Roads and transportation infrastructure. Educated workforces. Courts and legal systems. Innovations sparked by government funding, such as the internet. No one – no matter how smart or hard working – joins the American or global elite without making use of these shared resources.
But while working and middle-class families pay their taxes or face consequences, the Panama Papers remind us that the worst of the 1% have, for years, essentially been stealing access to Americans’ common birthright, and to the benefits of our shared endeavors.
My two cents.
First of all, not only the united states of america have this tax problem, European nations have the same issue, as well as Russia, I guess even Africa. So this is still the fundamental issue we have to face.
Secondly, I am a bit afraid that know everyone is saying the "universal basic income" is something we need. I still think this would be a great idea, but you know you are getting fooled when hardliners are stating thinking loudly about that topic in a positiv way. History proofed this to often, to badly .
