I’ve often dreamed of starting a company that sells quality but inexpensive goods at exorbitant prices to filthy rich people and then funneling those profits toward a cause for God’s kingdom. I would call the company R.Hood. Stealing from the rich in order to feed the poor has a certain ring of justice to it, although in this case, it’d be fair business, not stealing.
There’s a proposition on the California ballot that will impose a special tax on some of the richest Californians ($400k single / $800k married) in order to fund universal preschool.
Setting the universal preschool debate aside, is it moral to target tax the rich? Is it good economics? I’m trying to reason with a Kingdom-ethic in a secular society but I keep hitting my head against the wall.
