Millionaires call on governments worldwide to 'tax us now'*
An annual “wealth tax” on those with fortunes of more than $5m (£3.7m) could raise more than $2.52tr.
That would be enough, they said, to “lift 2.3 billion people out of poverty; make enough vaccines for the world and deliver universal healthcare and social protection for all the citizens of low and lower-middle-income countries (3.6 billion people).
The proposed tax would see those with more than $5m pay 2%, rising to 3% for those with more than $50m and a 5% rate for dollar billionaires.
