Visions of a fair society
 

“If the wealth of the 1% was shared like it is in more equal countries, like the Netherlands or Denmark, then 99% of us would be better off by around £3000 a year”
Ace animation from the High Pay Centre

 

“Denmark’s long-term growth has trailed the pace of expansion in the United States and some other major economies. Among Danes, though, distaste for ostentatious wealth tends to outweigh dissatisfaction with taxes. ‘Elite is a dirty word here,’ Mellish said. ‘The whole idea of ambition is embarrassing in Denmark.'”

Greeze 3: Yeah, distribute it

Greeze 1: Wouldn’t we be communists?
Greeze 3: Yeah, but there’d be no poverty.
Greeze 1: Yeah, no-one’s rich and no-one’s poor. We all live equal, if you know what I mean. And we all have jobs that benefit, rather than ourselves, other people.
Greeze 3: And we all have transformers; robots, definitely robots.
