What do you think about a wealth tax?
Marlene Engelhorn is a millionaire who wants to be taxed more. She isn’t alone in this, and when I spoke to her she stressed that she is not alone in having this idea as a wealthy person, nor is she an expert on the issue. That being said, she is very well informed, extremely passionate about the idea that social inequality could be improved with a wealth tax, and she understands the issue from a deeply personal perspective.
This episode was very much a lesson for me. Marlene wonderfully explains what is a somewhat abstract issue to people who, like myself, aren’t as financially literate as those who have enough wealth to pay for those lessons. She is a powerful advocate for an issue that affects us all, but from my experience, isn’t spoken about perhaps because we feel that we don’t understand it. Have a listen, leave a comment, get involved.
