A Modest Proposal: Tax Joe Stiglitz at 100 Percent

Lew Rockwell Blog [1]
Jan 20, 2013

Joseph Stiglitz, yet another Nobel Prize winner in economics who has forsaken economic analysis, writes in the (What else?) [2] New York Times that our real problem is “inequality,” and if there were no inequality, we would be in a robust recovery.

Thus, I have an idea: Since Stiglitz probably makes more than a million dollars a year, why not tax him (and Paul Krugman, who also makes millions a year) at 100 percent?

That will lessen inequality a bit and also would allow Krugman and Stiglitz to live the examples they demand for others.
