A Call to Action: The Super Rich Tax Manifesto for a Balanced Future


Meet Jean-Paul Fonteijn, a seasoned Senior Project Manager who has spearheaded notable projects at institutions like ING and LeasePlan Bank. His work at ING graced the Dutch Financial Times’ front page, while LeasePlan Bank’s project earned significant accolades. Beyond corporate successes, Jean-Paul founded the philanthropic initiative SRT, showcasing his commitment to societal change. With such a background, he brings a unique lens to the economic conversation.

Have you ever felt like you’re watching a feast from outside the banquet hall, only nibbling on breadcrumbs while others enjoy a lavish meal? The current economic scenario might give you that sense.

Here’s some food for thought. Business moguls in Britain saw their salaries skyrocket, with some raking in an astounding €4.6 million. Meanwhile, the average Joe in the UK is trying to make ends meet with a €38,700 salary. That’s a hard pill to swallow, isn’t it?

Discover Jean-Paul Fonteijn with a timely Super Rich Tax Manifesto and a fresh perspective on the subject. Let’s explore his proposal.

Acknowledging Economic Disparity

We’ve all sensed it – something’s amiss. The rich are amassing wealth while the rest of society struggles. In the UK, CEOs earn a staggering 118 times more than the average worker. It’s not a complex equation; it’s an undeniable gap.

Jean-Paul’s Vision of the Super Rich Tax

But Jean-Paul doesn’t stop at highlighting problems; he offers solutions. In his book– Extreme Wealth Should be Taxed, he passionately discusses the ‘Super Rich Tax.’ It’s not about penalizing the wealthy out of spite. Rather, it’s a way to level the playing field, ensuring everyone gets a fair shot.

Looking Beyond the Numbers

While Jean-Paul’s book is peppered with figures, statistics, and graphs, it never loses its humane touch. He dives into the real-world implications of wealth disparity. He illustrates how it’s not just about digits in a bank account. It’s all about people’s lives, opportunities, and their dreams. Every dollar sign he references is a life, an opportunity, a child’s education, someone’s health, or a community’s well-being.

A Call for Global Action

Jean-Paul’s message transcends borders. His manifesto encourages us to collaborate and improve our world.

It often feels like we’re stuck in a repetitive movie, witnessing the wealth gap widen. Fortunately, Jean-Paul offers a fresh script, a roadmap for change.


In a world where the chasm between the haves and the have-nots continues to grow, voices like Jean-Paul Fonteijn’s are not just refreshing but essential. His blend of professional expertise and genuine concern for societal well-being offers a unique perspective on economic equality.

As we navigate the complexities of our modern economic landscape, it’s thinkers and doers like Jean-Paul who light the way. His manifesto isn’t just a document; it’s a call to action, urging us all to play our part in crafting a fairer future.
