635: 100% Inheritance Tax? Why not?

Replace all of this code with the youtube embed code, set width=910 height=512

I’m shocked we still have the conversation in 2017, but the fact is most people are ignorant of history and immune to good ideas.

Such is the case for Guardian columnist Abi Wilkinson.

Wilkinson laments the fact that so many people die with money in their pockets, choosing to pass it on to their family rather than giving it to the government to be redistributed.

So, why is an inheritance tax such a bad idea? Wouldn’t it be better if Britains took the 77billion pounds gifted in inheritance each year and spent it on the welfare state?

Well, NO! If you want to understand why this is such a bad idea listen to today’s show.

***
Should we repeal the 17th amendment? If your gut response is, “What’s the 17th amendment?” then you need to hit play and listen to the discussion.

Lot’s of great stuff today. I love days like this.

Enjoy!
