15. But this is a carrot and stick approach.

The idea is to have the tax rate be linked hand in hand with the the unemployment and poverty rate so if those two are running high then the wealthy pay higher and higher taxes, if those two are running low then they pay lower.
Its a true carrot and stick approach because if they try to game the system by doing low paying jobs that keep people at or below the poverty level (like in texas) then their taxes stay high, if however they create jobs that pay well and the unemployment and poverty level are low then they get lower taxes.
As it is now though they get the lower taxes with no real incentive to invest.
