Wealth for the Common Good is a network of business leaders, high-income individuals and partners working together to promote shared prosperity and fair taxation. We are "the 1 percent" that wants an economy that works for everyone. Our membership includes entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, school teachers, engineers and elected officials of all backgrounds and from all over the country.
As a capitalist, I understand that the health of our economic system is maintained not just by all of us working hard on our own, but on the investments we all make together. For 40 years, the wealthy have been disinvesting in our public institutions and services because of a steady stream of tax cuts. Real capitalists should know that this is a mistake. Our nation needs us to re-invest. Paying a bit more in taxes is a good start.
