6820722517_a5ba2394f8_bThe rich are getting extremely richer. An Oxfam report shows that only 85 humanoids own as much as the bottom half of the entire world. As End Neoliberalism exposes in the book Tax and Regulate the One Percent, the super rich incurred record profits for 3 consecutive years (2010, 2011, and 2012) after taxpayers bailed them out in 2008. Without progressive taxes and regulations, the ultra rich added $525 billion in wealth in 2013 and prospects show that they will get even richer in 2014! How much of this wealth will be subsidized by the public? Find out in Tax and Regulate the One Percent
