    very right. my answer to the Chavez vs. Dubai & AbuDhabi question can be read at my homepage (sorry it is not entirely EN+FR+DE yet, partially it is only german)
    my argument: the more “hard”working” we are, the faster we destroy the planet as Human Kind’s living basis: deforesting destroys Oxygene production, CO, CO2 and NOx plus thermal power plants (from gas & oil “upto” (!) nuclear) heat the breathing air with their 30% (!) efficiencies. (the rest 70% is waste heat)

    Combining this fact with the “usual” hysterical run for income and with that slavery in Europe and Africa should be over by now, responsibility of Governments really should include to guarantee a minimum living standard and life quality to their citizens. And that is not only for rich countries, as shown in the http existenzgeld2 wordpress com (with link from my) homepage.

    A fair 50% wealth tax sounds unreasonable and high at the first glance but if it is put in relation to GDP (and with a taxfree basic wealth amount of 30xGDP to 50xGDP = approx. 1-2 million $ by 2010/2012), only some 1-2% billionnaires could complain about it.
