There is a big hard back book which I have owned for some time called “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” by Thomas Piketty. The book has 685 pages, I confess I have read very few of these pages, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Technology comes to the rescue, there are many interviews on Youtube featuring the still young author. If like me you think the free market economic system is creating problems which will erupt in our children and grandchildren’s life-time, you could start here: https://youtu.be/JKsHhXwqDqM.
A phrase which sticks in my mind is, ‘tax the rich’, there is an answer.
I have been a teacher and a lecturer for a number of years. I am married with two sons. I'm interested drama, films, TV, books, society in general, poverty and riches and political systems.
