"I think [a consumption tax] is a pretty hypocritical way of paying a tax. You have some people out there, including Bill Gates, who want to look as if they’re very generous, but they always want to keep deciding for themselves how generous they want to be. They don’t like the tax system because the tax system is deciding for them how much they have to pay. It kills the possibility for them to decide what they should pay, what should be done, what should we do about education in Africa. Of course he doesn’t know anything about that but you know, he wants to decide. At some point you want to consume power."
