Global problems require global solutions. Wealth inequality has reached crisis levels, and is likely to continue to worsen. A progressive global wealth tax on millionaires and billionaires solves the problem of offshore tax havens.


Amend the introduction to Chapter IV. Economic Justice & Sustainability, section E. Fair Taxation by inserting the sentence:

“We call for a progressive global wealth tax on millionaires and billionaires, in order to reduce crisis-level wealth inequality and eliminate the problem of offshore tax havens.”

between the current sentences

“We call for progressive taxation, shifting tax from individuals to corporations, taxing “bads” not “goods,” taxing unearned income at the same rate as earned income, taxing speculation on Wall Street, and cutting corporate tax giveaways.”


“We will institute comprehensive tax reform to simplify the tax system. We will eliminate loopholes and other exemptions that favor corporate and wealthy interests over tax justice.”


Approval of this proposal will amend the 2018 GPUS Platform,
