Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
interesting math but I always have problems with wealth being taxed because it is expropriation. I perfer a tax on income, regardless of the source of that income (e.g. salary, dividends, rents...).

The only thing I might be able to support is an inheritance tax if it devised properly and doesn't cause family enterprises to break down once the next generation inherits it. As a an ex banker advising the German Mittelstand I can say that that can be an issue. But it can be solved in a number of ways...
