Millionaires call on governments worldwide to 'tax us now'

[[Patriotic Millionaires]].

[[An annual β€œwealth tax” on those with fortunes of more than $5m (Β£3.7m) could raise more than $2.52tr]].

That would be enough, they said, to β€œlift 2.3 billion people out of poverty; make enough vaccines for the world and deliver universal healthcare and social protection for all the citizens of low and lower-middle-income countries (3.6 billion people).

The proposed tax would see those with more than $5m pay 2%, rising to 3% for those with more than $50m and a 5% rate for dollar billionaires.
