One thing that would definitely bring some fairness (at least in the US) is to tax capital gains income (like those made in the stock market) as heavily, or even more heavily, than earned income - where someone had to sweat and get blisters and other stuff. In particular, I'd add the FICA (Social Security Tax) to their income - no more free ride on the big bucks - and probably remove the cap on FICA-taxed income, or at least move it up to where it guarantees solvency of the Social Security system.
It's time the real workers stop getting exploited while the gamblers hug their mattress' full of money.
