    Clearly, we don’t just need a minimum wage, and one that’s considerably higher, but a minimum income guarantee for every man and woman in the country. This would redistribute the nation’s wealth downwards for a change, after more than forty years of moving in the opposite direction, transferring wealth upwards. Alas, given the distribution of Power in the country, which was also massively redistributed away from the great mass of ordinary people and into the hands of a small ruling elite, this is unlikely to happen, regardless of how people vote in the coming election.
