Alexander Shepherd Posted 10 months ago What are some realistic and creative ways to reduce wealth inequality? Larry, Unfortunately I do not understand your stance in regards to providing a solution to reduce wealthy inequality. I believe if you approach this question on a more individualistic level, we see that corporations are made up of the rich / wealthy. And yes, I do agree that offering apprenticeships in that light might be seen as a form of 'paid slavery', however, I am sure that you would agree with me, that these apprenticeships offer people with little or no skills to acquire skills, which means later on down the line, they don't have to be 'paid slave'. I do also have to note that corporations are made from businesses, and businesses are made up of skilled individuals, therefore, I feel that such an outlook on corporations is quite pessimistic as, from what I understand, you have now linked skilled individuals which in my opinion can reduce wealth inequality (as the more skilled the individual, the higher the wage, therefore more likely to own assests) to organizations which takes advantage of low-skilled individuals, and keeps them at such a level. Well, a way of possibly implementing this model of the rich giving skills to the poor is to introduce tax benefits. But, however, do you think that people wouldn't help others who are in need? I am sure that many wealthy people in the world do have a heart and want to share there knowledge and skills with others, and so if we connect them to the people that truly need it, then certainly this is a possible way to reduce wealth inequality? How would you solve it?
