The gap between rich and poor today is the biggest in living memory. As leaders convene for the World Economic Forum’s Davos Summit, what can be done to address the ever-widening wealth gap? A group of uber rich, calling themselves Patriotic Millionaires, published an open letter this week asking governments to tax them more. Would that address inequality?
