According to the New York Times’ Book Review of ‘Time for Socialism,’ by Thomas Piketty ,
Piketty calls for a “universal capital endowment” for all citizens beginning at birth, funded by taxes on wealth and inheritances.
Though provocative, none of these ideas is remarkable or original.
Well I am sure the idea wasn’t original with me either. But what is remarkable (to me) is the lack of a strong movement arguing for this for decades.
