'Out of the box' thinking on inequality

This is not strictly digitisation (well, not at all) but I thought I’d just point to a piece I put out today on using social pressure to solve the inequality problem by getting the rich to feel compelled to pay more taxes. Basically, the idea is that shining a light on contributions (even doing so on an opt-in basis) might have big effects.

Here is the original article and here is the unabridged version at Medium.

Of course, as with all good ideas, Tim Harford tells me that The Onion got there first.
