stewartb I’d like to share a recent article published by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS – see below).

'As Adam Smith famously said in the Wealth of Nations, when the job of government becomes to protect the owners of wealth from the people, corruption is inevitable.'

I’m going to suggest is that the existence of a billionaire is so corrosive to the common weal of society that we shouldn’t have any multi-billionaires.
