The New Yorker letter

Last month, I had a letter published in The New Yorker in response to Sheelah Kolhatkar‘s excellent profile of Abigal Disney.

Although I appreciate Disney’s efforts to radically examine her lifestyle and its impact, and how she’s organized with other ultra wealthy folk to call for higher income taxes and other strategies to address our profound income inequality in the States, my letter from the Jan. 27, 2020 issue responds to a notion floated by one of the Patriotic Millionaire members that a couple living on $500,000 a year in the United States might not be “truly wealthy.”

I recommend reading Kolhatkar’s piece to get a full picture of their efforts.
