I would only point out that the only known way to achieve better income balance is through a robust economy that has vigorous job growth in the middle-income sectors and which is managed to avoid serious recessions, in that recessions are when the rich “extend their lead” over the other classes by snapping up assets at bargain prices when “everyone else” is forced to sell to raise needed cash.

And, although I think your “supported measures” really don’t do much other than nibble around the edges……with the exception of #2, which will actually become necessary in the near future as automation continues to chop away at middle class jobs.

A 32 hour work week might be the next major step we take to balance out the economy.
