Progressive tax code and affirmative action
The famous capitalist Adam Smith said those who benefit more from society have a greater debt to society. This is in the form of a progressive tax code. But I've been thinking a bit about societal benefits and wonder how we can address race. Whites (especially white males) have greater opportunities from society than minorities. Should they also not give more back, or should minorities be given a little help for equity sake?
