Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The most direct way to address the benefit that incumbents would enjoy from a JG program is to institute an asset tax on all individuals with a threshold somewhere between the equivalent of US$2 million and $10 million. To be effective it would have to be highly progressive above that threshold. In the US almost all of the potential beneficiaries of such a tax would think it was unfair to those on whom it is levied. Sadly.
