Short version: If the rich had less money the world would be happier.

How much money has been spent in the last few decades on the “war on poverty”? Reich’s “solutions” are usually to do more of what didn’t work the first time or have been tried and failed miserably elsewhere.

The problem isn’t about shrinking shares, but increasing government-induced burdens. And that’s thanks partly to the “borrow, tax, borrow, spend, borrow, repeat” cycle of bloated government endorsed by Reich that is burying current and future Americans in debt and job-killing laws and regs.
