Question of the day: if you were wealthy would you be in favour of more taxes on wealth tax, and why?

Posted on

It's easy for most people to favour additional taxes on wealth. That is because they will not pay them.

But suppose you were wealthy? Would you favourite additional taxes on wealth in that case?

Warren Buffet famously does. As he once said, he paid a lower rate of tax than his secretary, and that's wrong.

Evidence I've noted this morning suggests underpayment by the wealthy may well be greater than many have thought.

I have come to the same conclusion.

So would you favour more tax on wealth if you were wealthy, and as importantly, why?
