Okay…I continue with my blogging marathon!
I was so thrilled to read yesterday, in “The Hindu”, about 16 of the France’s wealthiest people coming forward to pay more taxes. I began telling about that to everybody I spoke to (read-every Indian), with an obvious excitement. Today, I read another news, that the German rich are also calling for the same. Thrilled again!
More thrills came, when “The Hindu” published another article today “Europe’s wealthy ask to be taxed more”. Wonder if I will ever read such an announcement from the Indian rich! :((. This was the sentiment that most of my friends too echoed, when I shared with them this news piece… :((
I am naive enough not to understand the implications and loopholes in this process. However, I still think its a good move on the part of the super-rich. It won’t make them poor anyways :P. In a way, they’ve made my day with the announcement! 🙂
Here is the Warren Buffet article from NYT, which is supposed to have triggered these moves.
