@feld You're addressing to different, though real and relevant problems.
One is under-pricing of fossil carbon fuels. Another is general inequality and inequity, as well as the age-old conflict between _rents_ incomes vs. _wages_ incomes. The rentiers generally win, the wage-earners generally lose.
There are additional taxes you want to impose on the 1%, but you _still_ have to make fossil fuels pay full freight.
@feld There are a few different classes of economic goods (or services), and they seem to have very distinct pricing dynamics, tied to power. A relationship you should probably appreciate.
Wages tend to, or below, subsistence, in a free market, absent corrective actions (labour laws, minimum wages, employer of last resort, unionisation). Rents tend to absorb consumer surplus value. A really bad place to be is a wage-earner in a rental market.
Commodities tend to low prices.
