My Talk on Billionaires that Concludes with the Ultimate Political Question: How Much is Enough?

January 9, 2019

This afternoon I gave a talk at the local Rotary Club that posed the question: Are Billionaires Good for America? A link to the power point presentation that served as the outline for my talk is provided below. It contains a lot of information that will likely be familiar to readers of this blog but, much to my surprise and dismay, was unfamiliar to most of the members in the club. It concluded with a slide that asserted that there is one question we need to ask: how much is enough. Here are the areas the slide suggests we need to pose the question “How Much Is Enough”?

•For setting income tax brackets?

•For setting the maximum taxable limit for social security?

•For corporate tax breaks at ALLlevels?

•For privatization of public services?(i.e. Police? Fire departments? Highways? Schools? Etc, etc)

•For deregulation? (i.e. for safety? the environment? Wages and working conditions? )

•For safety at all levels? (i.e. for defense? Hardening schools? Police? Fire departments? )

And here’s a link to the entire presentation:
