Interesting read, but not necessarily an easy one.

This is not easy reading although it is far more understandable that I feared it might be. It's lessons and assumptions are clear. The inequality of the distribution of wealth across the world is becoming a major problem. When a very few individuals control the majority of the wealth in the world and the number of truly poor people continues to grow because there is no way for them to grab their piece of the economic pie, something must be done to rebalance the system. Corporations move their businesses to tax sheltered places, avoiding taxes in the countries in which they produce most of their revenue, denying governments the tax dollars they deserve to uphold the society corporations want but are refusing to support. For me, it was an interesting read but not a quick one. Not being an economist, it took me a while to more clearly understand what I read.
