Abolir os bilionários? Importante aparecer no New York Times essa visão ao mesmo tempo assustadora e óbvia. Assustadora porque conhecemos o poder que os bilionários manejam. E óbvia porque se trata de muito dinheiro, inclusive, para que possam usar — até esbanjamento tem limites –, e para que possam dizer que mereceram:

“A billion dollars is wildly more than anyone needs, even accounting for life’s most excessive lavishes. It’s far more than anyone might reasonably claim to deserve, however much he believes he has contributed to society. At some level of extreme wealth, money inevitably corrupts. On the left and the right, it buys political power, it silences dissent, it serves primarily to perpetuate ever-greater wealth, often unrelated to any reciprocal social good.”
