Alan Broadbent, CEO Avana Capital: "Target the Poor, Not the Rich, For Real Solutions to Income Inequality" @ Canada's Globe and Mail Newspaper

Surprising policy facts cited by a finance capitalist with a central theme of a radical raise in the minimum wage and other small steps toward widespread economic recovery.  The Tax Justice Network enters the fray with a contradictory, spot on point, "Focus on poverty obscures the need to tackle inequality."  A pertinent discussion among the social democracies in Canada and Europe.

Question to readers in Brownbackistan (a/k/a "Kansas"): Why is this discussion muted, if non-existent here?
