ECONOMICS

Something's clearly wrong with this system.

 This unsustainable capitalist system is leading to the destruction of our planet, and the erosion of human rights. While so many people work long hours, they continue to see the wealth that they produce get ripped right out of their hands, only to be hoarded by CEOs and shareholders. While our planet is burning and young people's future is dissipating, the rich are robbing us, and it's time for it to end. 

WEALTH CAP

I believe that it is time to put a cap on wealth and income. No one should make more money than necessary to live, and large estates must be reformed.

LAND VALUE TAX

 It's time to move pass regressive tax systems, like the property tax, and move to a tax system of equity and justice. 

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

 I support a capital gains tax to ensure that the rich are paying what's due.

ESTATE TAX

 I support a 100% estate tax on estates larger than $5m USD. This is to prevent the passing down/inheritance of massive wealth from generation to generation.

GREENHOUSE GAS TAX

 It's time to implement a green house gas tax to punish fossil fuel companies for their disastrous pollution.

SHIFT THE TAX BURDEN

 Make the rich pay, not the poor.
