“Guided by the belief that equal access to economic opportunities is a basic right of all citizens, we must go back to first principles. Only then can we begin to design the kind of economy required to deliver that goal. Once we have established a set of principles for the kind of economy and society we want, then the technocrats can come up with new models and analytical frameworks to deliver it. Three aspects of today’s economic system get in the way of achieving genuine equality of opportunity: the monetary system, the financial system and the tax system.”
