It can be practical for the U.S. to impose the 2% wealth tax on the rich. Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren proposes a 2% wealth tax on the richest Americans with more than $50 million in total assets. For the even richer Americans with more than $1 billion total assets, the wealth tax should rise to 3%. This radical tax proposal may help raise almost $2.5 trillion to $3 trillion in a decade, although this proposal affects less than 0.1% of U.S. households in accordance with the fiscal estimates of Berkeley economic advisor Emmanuel Saez. On one hand, this wealth tax can help reduce economic inequality in America by closing the wealth gap between the rich and the middle class. At the same time, this wealth redistribution can promote better social mobility as the rich Americans may then find it difficult to transfer their economic advantages to the next generation via education, business ownership, and political power.

On the other hand, the wealth tax proposal can help fight tax evasion by wealthy Americans who might choose to renounce their U.S. citizenship by tunneling funds abroad. The proposal is now subject open debate and controversy as the American consensus tilts toward progressive taxation.
