Redistribution

What if we let people get rich, but dissuaded them from becoming too rich. You have an index that moves with the economy that sets a maximum reasonable income level and then tax the rest at 90%, to be used for social programs, infrastructure, etc…

How much money does one person really need? When there are individuals who are worth more than some countries, have we not let the concept of money devolve into wealth barbarism?  Do not forget that money is by its very nature a finite resource. The richer someone is, the poorer others are.

I fully endorsed the positive aspect of currency, for example incentive for achievement and ease of trade, but we must find a way to lift people up without pushing others down.
