that was what I had to read in my business ethics class this week. The author said inheritance doesn't follow the rule of capitalism since it does not create equal opportunity for everyone, which decrease incentive for the less wealthy people to be productive. And, the more wealthy people has more freedom because they have more money.
Thats what I've got from reading the article and my first impression is "what the **** is this"
inheritance is just another word for private properties and how is it giving someone else your properties is injustice? And of course, his solution is to run to the state to limit our freedom. He propose the solution to only able to give those wealth to ones spouse. If one does not has a spouse, the wealth belongs to the government after death. Another exception is orphans, disabled and the old will get a sufficient amount of wealth to live their lives.
Sorry if I'm all over the place. It feel like I disagree everything he says...
He gives me an impression that maybe he know the problem is the biological randomness that created this unfairness, but this is something we cannot change.
