Explain, please, why a cap is ridiculous?
Also explain please from where one derives a "right" to take as much from a shared economy as one can?
That smacks of "might makes right".
How wouild a cap damage the economy?
The super-wealthy are not smarter than anyone else, they are merely more selfish and ruthless.
Every single billionaire could drop dead tomorrow, and the world would continue just fine, probably better off for the loss. They don't really
contribute much to the global economy. The ideas and inventions they exploit aren't theirs, they are created by people who work for them.
I don't have wealth envy, as I wouldn't accumulate the stuff beyond what I need for my own projects: a few tens of millions at most. Anything that
required more wealth than I had to accomplish could be accomplished by forming a consortium. Having more minds looking at the consequences of actions
what some seem to argue for when arguing against limits is a dream of personal wealth great enough to by a global tyrant, unaccountable to anyone.,
surely an extremely immature viewpoint.
