I think the recommendations only scratch the surface; and this is why:
The time has come for a new global definition of wealth, itself.
For example, why is it that corporations have created a paradigm that puts a price-tag on forests, aquifers, and ecosystems that took eons to form?
The wealth gap is also the product of FAKE products that are treated as holding ultimate value when what they are--in essence--are bets on loans. A loan indicates money that is YET to be paid. That is, that money does not yet exist. But the relaxation of the Glass-Steagall Act, added to both computer technology (assisting in gargantuan simultaneous Wall St. "trades") and the introduction of these "faux products" created phenomenal sums--decoupled from actual things of worth--out of thin air.
Therefore, the entire paradigm based on granting to banks (or any outfit that puts together the right paperwork to call itself a bank) the right to make money out of thin air (it's called "fractional reserve currency") and then call THAT wealth is itself a tremendous heist against humanity AND the Living World.
The trading in derivatives, swaps, and these other faux "wealth" creations (which have been treated AS the real thing because so many profited that no one dared to pull the plug; and any brave whistle-blower got his head handed to him or was out-voted by those elite special interests that own the politicians who would arguably ACT to prevent such graft and corruption) is estimated to run over $400 trillion dollars whereas the ACTUAL global economy is about 20% of that.
In other words, it's all hot air!
And when the right wing Libertarian mouthpieces discuss this debt bubble, they never speak about the wealth inequities (as if these 400 families came by their embarrassment of riches through decency, initiative, and hard work), the phenomenal wastes on wars, or the tax games that allow the very rich to abscond with so much... they only insist with their oh so serious faces... that entitlements MUST be cut.
Rob the poor to prop up the carnivores (or should I say cannibals) who inhabit the top 1% place on the great pyramid that is grinding all life (and living systems) to a rapid halt!
It's the 21st century version of "The Midas Touch" fable.... after all, what will all the piles of paper money mean when the last tree falls, the water is too tainted to drink, and never is a bird song heard again?
