    The International Monetary Fund has called on governments to raise taxes on the wealthy to help pay for the cost of Covid and to reduce inequality. The Fund said a temporary tax on wealth or high incomes “would help the worst affected by the pandemic feel a sense of cohesion, improve access to basic services, enhance safety nets, and reinvigorate efforts to achieve sustainable development goals. A special excess profits tax for companies that made unusually high returns in 2020 should also be considered, the Fund said.
