Implementing a wealth tax is just plain common sense. We deal with massive, global challenges, from the ongoing pandemic to the climate crisis, which disproportionately affects marginalized communities. Meanwhile, inequality is rising at an unabated rate, with wealth concentrated in the hands of a few. We cannot count solely on generosity to solve these problems. The causes of inequality are systemic, so the solutions must be systemic. Taxing the rich is simply the way to go.
