Is it possible to have an economic model which enables the fair distribution of wealth?
Excerpt: We already have that. It’s called capitalism.
If my skills allow me to make $10 per hour, and your skills allow you to make $100 per hour, then a capitalist system allows both of us to earn the maximum amount of wealth that we are able to.
That’s literally the most fair distribution of wealth. No limits. No ceilings. I got my $10, you got your $100, and neither of us were limited by anything but our own individual abilities. It doesn’t get any more fair than that.
If you’re talking about a system where I get some of your $100, that isn’t a fair system at all. You earned that $100. I didn’t. There’s no scenario where it’s “fair” for me to take money out of your pocket and put it into mine.
