Ireland’s inequality problem: time to tax wealth or The trickle down myth: wealth is being sucked up
In this Reboot Republic podcast Rory talks to Bríd McGrath, Director of Public Affairs at Oxfam Ireland, about their latest report “Inequality Inc.”, which shows that Ireland´s richest two Irish billionaires have more wealth than the bottom half of the population, the richest 1% hold 35.4% of Irish financial wealth.and a progressive wealth tax on Irish millionaires and billionaires could generate up to €9.2 billion a year. Rather than blaming refugees and aslyum seekers we should focus on the real problems – the myth of the trickle down economics and the reality that wealth is being sucked up to the billionaires from everyone else.
