This is not the solution either. Legitimate tax planning (for families, small biz, etc) should not be vilified.

"Mr. Trudeau appeared to be caught off guard when reporters pressed him on why he was prepared to ban certain tax-avoidance measures that benefit small business when his own family has used other legal structures to also lower total taxes paid on the wealth left by his late father, Pierre Trudeau."

Trudeau’s wealth includes undisclosed distributions from his father’s estate in 2016 and interests in several numbered companies

"There's been a 9 percent drop in flood insurance coverage in the Houston area over the last five years and a drop of 15 percent in Florida, Associated Press investigations recently found. In some of the most severely affected counties, the drop was over 20 percent. Why would Floridians (who regularly face hurricanes) or Texans (who've experienced five major floods since 2010) make this unwise choice? The current head of the federal flood insurance program, Roy Wright, thinks he knows the answer: a decision by Congress in 2012 to raise premiums for the troubled National Flood Insurance program that covers what private insurers won't. Flood insurance now doesn't fit into stretched family budgets."

Videos and a publication aim to support existing women reps and add to their numbers, which are roughly 16% of the full US advisor force.

"No wine crime is more extensive than counterfeiting. Mostly it’s done with fine and rare wines; now, less remarkable wines are being targeted. In 2016, $400,000 worth of spurious Moët & Chandon Champagne were seized in Italy. A year earlier, fake bottles of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s inexpensive Miraval rosé were uncovered in China."
