The Institute for New Economic Thinking's President Rob Johnson was interviewed by the New Yorker on hedge-fund managers and the market for air strips in New Zealand...“By January, 2015, Johnson was sounding the alarm: the tensions produced by acute income inequality were becoming so pronounced that some of the world’s wealthiest people were taking steps to protect themselves. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Johnson told the audience, ‘I know hedge-fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway.’ ”Johnson bemoaned the lack of a “spirit of stewardship” and openness to more aggressively re-distributive tax policy among the wealthy. “Twenty-five hedge-fund managers make more money than all of the kindergarten teachers in America combined,” he told the New Yorker. “Being one of those twenty-five doesn’t feel good. I think they’ve developed a heightened sensitivity.” If anything, Osnos wrote, inequality is widening, noting recent statistics from the National Bureau of Economic Research that showed that while incomes for the top 1 percent of Americans have nearly tripled, half of the population was earning at the same level they did in 1980, comparing America’s wealth gap to that seen in the Democratic Republic of Congo. “If we had a more equal distribution of income, and much more money and energy going into public school systems, parks and recreation, the arts, and health care, it could take an awful lot of sting out of society,” Johnson said. “We’ve largely dismantled those things.” He saw elite anxiety as an indicator America’s social crisis. “Why do people who are envied for being so powerful appear to be so afraid?” Johnson said. “What does that really tell us about our system? It’s a very odd thing. You’re basically seeing that the people who’ve been the best at reading the tea leaves—the ones with the most resources, because that’s how they made their money—are now the ones most preparing to pull the rip cord and jump out of the plane.” Honestly with this I don't think the actual truth of why some of Americas most well off citizens are leaving, because if you take notice they are leaving since Trump announced his Presidential bid. The elite family's of America can tell us two things really...The obvious being like stated here of fearing a collapse of society, or the more likely situation where they are running from a Federal government who is about law an order. Now it looks like most these people leaving America in droves are very likely involved in Wall Street since they are mostly hedge fund managers...So this tells me elite bankers fear something very possibly coming onto them by way of the Trump administration. So either these rich Americans fleeing the nation who seem to all work in the financial sector are fearing the Trump administration, because they are involved in child pedophilia or very dirty money...And remember President Trump has declared law and order, so these American financial workers fleeing to other nations...Is likely stating that they know Trump is bringing the hammer of justice.
