    It would be interesting to see an approximation of actual rates paid.

    Can you post Kindermann and Krueger’s working paper and their information sources?

    “Despite these limitations, Kindermann and Krueger say that a top marginal tax rate in the range of 90 percent would decrease both income and wealth inequality, bring in more money for the government and increase everyone’s wellbeing — even those subject to the new, much higher income tax rate.”

    Kindermann and Krueger have done a great service. But the economists and others who carry the water for “the gospel that tax cuts for the highest income earners are good” are not interested in taxes or rates per se. They are interested in first, destroying democracy, second, destroying any effective government not ruled by the “highest income earners,” and third reducing the wellbeing of all who oppose their program. I’d say quash the poor and middle class, but it sounds so crass.
