How Do Global Millionaires Want to Solve Virus-Related Economic Damage?

As economies continue to struggle amid the ongoing battle against COVID-19, an open letter signed by dozens of global millionaires has emerged asking governments to increase taxes against the wealthy in order to fund necessary programs and initiatives to help those hit hardest by the pandemic. "We owe a huge debt to the people working on the frontlines of this global battle," the letter reads. "Unlike tens of millions of people around the world, we do not have to worry about losing our jobs, our homes or our ability to support our families...Tax us. Tax us. Tax us. It is the right choice. It is the only choice."
