I'm never sure what to think of this comparison. On the one hand, it's impressive, on the other hands, it's not how wealth works at all. Yes, tax the rich, obviously. But it's not like Elon Musk has 200 Billion on his savings account, he owns stocks valued that highly (which are probably grossly overvalued). Imo what should be done is use normal income tax on income from stocks etc, because right now the richt can get 100k of dividends a month in my country and be taxed 25% whereas my salary reaches into the 42% tax bracked, and that pisses me off.

If the rich don't get taxed, just become rich

Most people that are worth something, and have any skills whatsoever, do fine in the western world. And I am also not a jealous fuck, that wants to take from people that have more, just for that sole reason.

So you have 10k and don't invest it? Or is op not including interest rates and assuming we know what interest rate he's talking about. What about inflation, currency markets, exchange rates. Then there's the fact that I'm immortal and somehow concerned about money. (Yes I'm immortal don't question it) I can't even with this post.
