Bill Gates Says his $108.8 billion Wealth is Unfair

World second richest man, Bill Gates is not happy that the economic system of the world is structured to favour the rich more than those who are working hard.

The Microsoft founder who is currently worth $108.8 billion lamented that he earned disproportionately to those who work harder than him.

Hence, he urged the government in the United States to increase taxes on the rich and reduce taxes on the poor to close the wide gap between the poor and the rich. He stated this in a blog post published recently on the review of 2019.

Bill Gates wrote: "A few people end up with a great deal—I've been disproportionately rewarded for the work I've done—while many others who work just as hard struggle to get by.

"I'm for a tax system in which, if you have more money, you pay a higher percentage in taxes. I think the rich should pay more than they currently do, and that includes Melinda and me.

"I don't see any reason to favour wealth over work the way we do today. It is the clearest evidence I've seen that the system isn't fair."
