Do you value putting money where it actually matters? I know I definitely do.
Billionaires are often seen as key players to improving some of the world’s most pressing issues through big philanthropic donations. Unfortunately, the wealthy often make these contributions as a way to avoid taxes rather than out of the goodness of their hearts.
I envision a world where billionaires are given less power, so that they cannot continue “donating” their money in a way that does not actually serve the people who need it the most. Because billionaires make up a tiny portion of the world’s population, they are, for the most part, not in touch with the world’s needs.
We need to start redistributing the wealth amassed by the world’s most powerful people by taxing them more heavily. Only then can we start to see money being spent more equitably.
