Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
sorry, under wealth tax I understand taxing wealth, not the increase in wealth. Taxing an increase in wealth is OK because when wealth increased this is usually an income although it sometimes a bit tricky to do. Appreciation of real estate is, of course, a bit tricky to tax until it is sold (at which point I would tax it) or until the rent is increased (which is already taxed).

Re the business issue, as I said, there are many easy solutions to that, but they just have to makes sure it doesn't kill the small compnies. If they are big and especially if they are listed on an exchange it's relatively easy...
