Whenever a columnist like Sowell who I appreciate writes an article, honesty is the best policy: Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel prize winner in economics and professor at Columbia University, said he disagrees.
"It's not class warfare to ask everyone in the country to pay their fair share. To say the wealthy have taken advantage of their political position and have not paid their share of taxes is not class warfare. It's a statement of fact," Stiglitz told ABC News. "The fact is they are paying lower taxes and most Americans think this is unjust and unfair. Tax loopholes don't just appear out of thin air. They are the result of big political investments that rich people have particularly made to get tax preferences."
