The tax situation is tricky for sure. My son sold a business that he worked very hard on with 80 hour weeks for a very long time, and sacrificed a lot for. It was a good sale but not enough that he can retire young. Because it was incorporated in a state with income tax, he paid about 50% of the sale price in combined state and federal taxes. I don't know what is fair.Honestly, if the average family could get along well with only one income, that would be ideal. That's the "good old days" politicians love to refer to back in the 1950s/1960s, so if a family can get by with one income and one parent can stay home (in a "nuclear" family), then that certainly won't hurt anything.
Now whether the people at the top with 25M+ quarterly bonuses want to share a little down the line without something tragic eventually happening we'll have to see. I suspect it would take politicians that actually work for the people to do so (no, we don't really have any of those right now), but they could have a more fair tax/wage system. It exists in Europe, and I don't think any of the countries it's in have gone bankrupt or full communist China.
