The 325 Million people of the United States produce nearly 20 Trillion dollars of income every year. Credit Suisse estimates that we have a combined net worth (what we own less what we owe) of 94 Trillion dollars…and none of this counts what the rich have secretly hidden away in overseas tax heavens.
Sharing equally, every family of four would have a yearly income of over $240,000 per year and a net worth of over $1,000,000.
We are all rich if we share.
The decision about how we share ultimately comes from the people. It is a political decision.
The rich are only rich if we let them be.
