DU POLL: Do you think there should be a cap on how much wealth one individual can accumulate? [View all]

Last edited Fri Nov 30, 2012, 08:43 AM - Edit history (1)

I think there should be a cap on wealth accumulation, we used to do it through taxation, but that has eroded.

No society IMO can function for the whole of the citizenry when outlandish accumulation of wealth occurs. And, over time, the wealth will grow to incredible levels, much as will poverty and the have-nots.

It's a game rigged against the majority. The 21st century has to be about more than whom can create the most wealth. If not, we probably don't need to worry about the 22nd century.

Hence, I vote yes.
