Question of the day: which wealth taxes?

Posted on

I am curious to know the answer to a question which is of particular concern to me right now.

I am working on the blogs that will comprise the recommendations for reforming the taxation of wealth because, as I have shown, if there is a need for more revenue the owners of wealth have most to contribute.

So the question is, what reform most appeals in this area? Is it a wealth tax? Or a land value tax? Or capital gains tax on homes? A reform to inheritance tax? Or somewhat easier measures like equalising income and capital gains tax rates? Or increasing the tax on investment income whilst reducing tax reliefs for the best off?

I am genuinely interested in what people think.
