Michael Dell is worth ~$30 billion. I don't think Dell Computers ever had anything close to a monopoly.

And that is what Michael Dell said at Davos, when asked about @Ocasio2018  ’s marginal tax increase proposal. Nice society you got there, full of needy people. Be a shame if you taxed away my foundation that could help them.

Whether it’s Michael Dell at Davos or Mike Bloomberg at the gun safety forum or Zuckerberg on Fox, the philanthropy is explicitly being used to justify inequality. Without this system, we are told, you wouldn’t have Dell charity, Bloomberg forums, Zuck’s research. SO PIPE DOWN.

This is the “smoking gun” of my thesis that is often an implied or buried smoking gun. Occasionally, as with Michael Dell at Davos, it comes out explicitly. Philanthropy used to justify manic hyper-capitalism. And here again is the smoking gun.

What is the net worth of computer company founder Michael Dell, one of the richest people in the world?

To be fair, this works successfully when you’re talking to Michael Dell.

Amid laughter, Dell founder Michael Dell explains why he would’t support Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s call for a higher marginal tax rate on people earning over $10 million: “I’m not supportive of that and I don’t think it would help the growth of the US economy.”
