The Democratic party mega-donor has to distinguish himself from other candidates with no widespread name recognition in the 2020 field
Tom Steyer entered the Democratic primary with a singular advantage: the largest fortune of any 2020 candidate. It could also be his biggest liability.
Reflecting on the ethics of a billionaire candidate at a time when growing inequality is a key election issue, the former hedge fund manager and Democratic party mega-donor offered up an unusual defense: Queen Bey.
Should we put a limit on what Beyonc makes? I dont see why, Steyer told the Guardian by phone. I dont think in the United States of America, we should put a ceiling on how far people can go.
Steyer transitioned to a critique of communism and the argument that at the heart of every great fortune is a crime: What Karl Marx failed to take into consideration was software that if you are Michael Jackson or Rihanna or Beyonc or anyone producing an idea, with software you arent just the best singer in your village you have an ability to reproduce that song infinitely at very low cost around the world.
