向富人征税解决不了贫富差距

Rachel Black 2014年05月15日

经济学家皮凯蒂的新书《21世纪资本论》提议在全球征收财产税,抑制贫富差距。不过,这个措施并不能帮助穷人积累财富。政府要做的是取消加剧贫富差距的政策,代之以能促进新财富生成的体系,帮助广大家庭增加积蓄。

    皮凯蒂的观点很对,财富不断地滚雪球会带来深远的问题。无论是从宏观上看,还是从家庭精打细算过日子、努力往前奔,都是这样。取消我们那些加剧贫富差距、具有缺陷的公共政策,代之以能够促使新的财富生成的新体系,这将会让更多美国人分享到经济成功带来的巨大驱动力。(财富中文网)

    As Piketty rightly observes, the continued consolidation of wealth is deeply problematic. This is true on a macro scale as well as in the day-to-day lives of families trying to make ends meet and get a few steps ahead. Replacing our flawed public policies that exacerbate this problem with a system that facilitates the creation of new wealth would go a long way toward allowing more Americans to share in such a powerful driver of economic success.
