@jwildeboer Whenever I see these kind of things, it makes me so upset. There are so many people struggling in the world, yet the greed of these billionaires is so ridiculous. I doubt they would even notice much of a difference in terms of their lifestyles even if they did pay their fair share of tax, but the difference it would make to everything overall is insane.

Profit/loss based taxation is designed specifically to be gamed by the well-connected.

Look into Progressive Land Tax on Improved (Rental) value.

There's a book about it by a chap named Henry George called, Progress and Poverty.

You might have heard of it :)
