Rich petition for higher tax

German millionaires are petitioning the government for an increase in income tax, arguing they don't need the cash but it would help deal with the deficit, reduce inequality and fund renewable energy.

Here in the UK Green Left members will be putting forward a maximum pay resolution to the next Green Party Conference.

In other news, Greed, a new book on greed contains a chapter by yours truly on radical economics and greed.

The age of greed needs to make way for the age of green.

Might add that I am not being paid for Greed, which is appropriate!

Stop press: Americans want higher taxes too.
