From the BBC:
A group of rich Germans has launched a petition calling for the government to make wealthy people pay higher taxes.
The group say they have more money than they need, and the extra revenue could fund economic and social programmes to aid
Sometimes the cultural dimensions of NZ’s rogernomic “greed is good” mentality are more easily identified when drawing direct comparisons with other countries. When did you last see the wealthiest men in this country putting considerations of fellow Kiwis above their own wealth. When was the last time you saw Fay and Richwhite, Graeme Hart, or the Fletchers, calling for more tax?
It doesn’t have to be like this New Zealand. We don’t owe these people a life beyond luxury at our own expense.
