The lower 90% of US income earners have lost $50 trillion to the 1% since the 1950, with the rate about $2.5 trillion/year right now. If income inequality had been kept at post-WW2 levels in the US, every income earner would be getting an extra $1140/month... That's no joke. That sounds like a great opportunity for UBI funded by massive increases in top-level corporate & billionaire taxation.


Remembering, of course, that taxation was invented as a relatively non-violent alternative to the gallows.
