What should the New Deal be like?
We are living in an age where 1% of the population have 30% of the wealth, and as those plutocrats grasp that wealth tightly and give their sons and daughters every opportunity to follow their own paths, they turn into aristocrats and so the system goes on. I don't say the government has to cut the incentives and collect equal amount of tax from the "biggies". Taxation already differs for those biggies contributing to economic growth. But on the other side of the coin there are those who can't make the ends meet. Minimum wages are just above the poverty line. So, how is it possible to solve the problem of excessive inequality in income distribution? What can be done to implement the necessities of being a social state?
