From Business Insider:
* In recent years, the IMF has shifted its focus and recommended policies aimed at reducing inequality.
Milking the rich to promote ”income equality” is cruel and immoral.
Worst of all, it robs the people getting handouts of the dignity of making something out of themselves.
It is sad that the IMF has turned itself into a tool for socialist propaganda.
If they really cared about the material quality of life of the “disadvantaged,” they would promote free enterprise.
Then they would get “opportunity equality” in that everyone would be able to become rich.
Best of all, they would become “spiritually rich” through the dignity of making something out of themselves.
