What if the rich just gave without it being "taken" from them?


What impact would it have on the USA if people who were rich just gave like this all on their own?

    But of those 7%, how many are like the Pharisees, all show and no heart. Anonymous philanthropy would be the best for all concerned.

    If American gov't used its wealth on food instead of war, no one on Earth would starve.

    Well the message of what Harry Rosen did isn't to give away his money but use his money to incentivise them. A big difference that this government doesn't get.

    Rochelle! ah someone who gets it! There really is no reason we as a society working together in the private sector can't solve these types of problems Harry Rosen has solved without taking money from the rich to waste it on government policies.

    Even were we to accept Newsweek's methodology, which is already a leap of faith, many good schools being in red states does not mean red states have better schools. Exemplars do not inform us about totalities or averages.
