I thought this was a rather thought-provoking article written by billionaire venture capitalist Nick Hanauer. When it was released in 2014 it was one of the most shared articles of politico. It is encouraging to see a growing number of High Net Worth Individuals standing up to take responsibility for the inequality they helped cause. They are starting to wake up to the idea that rampant, 19th Century feudal inequality is bad for everybody. Bad for the 99,99 %, bad for the general health of the population, bad for wealth distribution, and bad for democracy (see Trump). I don’t agree on all of his points; especially the last one, but nonetheless, a worthwhile article. Please read!
