A plea from the heart of the Establishment: Make the Rich Pay!?!

Our ruling circles must really be getting in a tizzy -- here's the solution suggested from a front page column by Eric Reguly in yesterday's Report on Business of the Globe and Mail:

"To fund debt restructurings in Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ireland, and perhaps France, governments will have to shake down the rich, who are the holders of the last largely intact store of money."
In Canada, our rulers are much more content, for now, to blame working people and demand they pay for the economic problems. 

But, who knows what crisis might require? In Canada, just as in these other countries, most of the wealth created over the last few decades has gone to the well to do.
