The Left using Piketty in Netherlands

CONTRIBUTED FROM NETHERLANDS:
Hi Martin,
There you have it: one of the Dutch left parties, Green Left, is proposing draconian wealth taxes based on Thomas Piketty’s book. See the link below. Some of the things they want:
* A (maximum) 50% tax on capital for the super rich
* Increase the tax on dividends from 15% to 30%
* Huge taxes on inheritance above 1 million euro’s
* Going after multi-nationals that are trying to avoid taxes
Best wishes, Hans from the Netherlands
