Let me offer premptive props to French professor Piketty, whose instant classic on Capital is all anyone can talk about.
Messr. Piketty is on the verge of a major success in helping to bring down inequality in his home country. Based on these old but not hopelessly dated stories, the wealthy French are leaving France in droves to flee higher taxes. This high-earner exodus will bring down Piketty's tax-based income figures when they are finally available in a few years, and champagne will flow freely as France celebrates its triumph over inequality (or at least over a rising trend). That is, the champagne will flow freely if there is anyone left to pick up the tab; otherwise we will be looking at table wine and tap water.
But still, congrats in advance.
TO BE FAIR, BUT NOT REALLY... Piketty does call for a global wealth tax, presumably informed by experience. But he is hazy as to whether this global tax should be collected by unicorns and enforced by dragons or vice versa, so I just can't take it seriously.
