  • Is the argument of Piketty that billionaires should be taxed out of existence for the benefit of all really as bad as this columnist thinks it? Bloomberg has it.
  • I do agree with this Open Democracy column suggesting a badly-handled guaranteed minimum income scheme could be a disaster.
  • It is a sad irony that the stresses of poverty have been confirmed to accelerate the aging of poor people. VICE reports.
  • Exercise plays a key role in helping slow down the aging process. The Conversation reports.
