people who make less than 50k a year contribute less than 6% of the income tax revenue. you don't think the rich pay their fair share?
you want to know what fair would be? a flat tax. that is an objective truth.
also in the 50s the top 5% contributed much less than they do now, see my other post,

The us tax code is over 17,000 pages long. The amount that you can use on itemized deductions is stupid. I get deductions from the deprecation of my shitbox, my mortgage, schooling and to top it off I shove my IRA full of cash and deduct my charitable donations. Not to mention if I had kids I would collect that sweet earned income credit. Learn to do taxes, you don't pay them afterwards.
No because you didn't bother taking a class at hr block on filing tax return. It's not hard to do even a filthy hapa like myself can do it.

No, actually, it's a simple range of problems. There isn't enough work anymore because labor costs are too high, cost of living has exploded because of needless regulation, and inflation is no longer indicative of wages because our banking system is literally run by a doomsday cult.

People like this are the stupidest idiots in the world. You think that because a bunch of investors make a shitton of money, they're taking it out of your pocket? None of them has EVER taken anything from you that you didn't either pay to them for a product or service, or that wasn't taken from you by (uh oh!) the fucking government first.

The reason you are miserable and have no opportunities is that bankers are allowed to get away with murder, while the federal reserve can simply print more money to loan them whenever they crash the economy. Taxes are literally meaningless to them because they control the inflation, and because "money" has no intrinsic value anymore.

This isn't the 1950s. The ultra-wealthy in this country aren't business magnates and oil tycoons anymore, they're hedge fund managers and bankers. You cannot apply the same reasoning to them that you used to. All high income taxes accomplish is taking money away from US, the people who actually work for a fucking living and want to better our livelihoods.

Try this, instead of appealing to naked greed by trying to rob successful people, just try this: Actually enforce fraud laws on investment banks, investment insurance companies, and the Federal Reserve. Hang the people responsible for the Sub-Prime Mortgage scam. Punish the criminals. If that doesn't work, THEN we can discuss you taking half of my paycheck to pay for more nigger welfare.

Jordan Ward
Jordan Ward

Honestly I don't even think it's that. I'd be completely in favor of handing over every cent I made if government actually knew how to use it in the most efficient way possible.

The problem is that government is the literal opposite of efficiency though, isn't it? I mean yeah, if we could all pitch in and help each other and it actually worked out where everyone was happy and got what they wanted, while everyone still also worked to their full potential to contribute to society, that'd be great.

But that's a fucking pipe dream, a fantasy. Bernouts think that's actually reality. That's the scary thing. I live in MA and the Big Dig is a great example of this. Bernouts want the entire country to be the Big Dig.

Houses are more expensive now because they're built better. I think it's also illegal now to not build them better.
Cars are more expensive for the same reason. They have much better safety standards than they did 60 years ago. We don't use asbestos and lead paint in houses anymore.
Housing is also in low supply since we've imported billions of immigrants and naturally our population has risen from birth rates.

It's not because "muh rethuglicans lowered tax rates"

you do understand that our economy is global now, right? apple does not have to exist in america to sell their shitty phones in america. if they left that would be a HUGE loss in terms of take revenue and all sorts of other shit. this goes for any company.
taking away tax havens is effectively raising taxes for corporations, if they can operate somewhere else for a lower cost you can bet your economically illiterate ass that they will.
just what good do you think will come by forcing businesses out of america?

Anthony Bennett
Anthony Bennett

Housing is also in low supply
no it's not. this is an incredibly local metric by the way. if there is a housing shortage somewhere then it becomes profitable to build houses and apartments, and people do so.
the only exception to this is areas with rent control legislation which makes owning property a liability instead of an asset so the new building stops. see new york in the 80s.

If I want a $100k house with a small amount of land there is absolutely nothing.
there is low supply of affordable housing because it's not profitable to build them because of building codes.

that just shifts the revenue burden onto consumers while limiting the available products. also it has all the disadvantages of forcing businesses out of your country, loss of jobs, loss of technology, etc.

there is low supply of affordable housing because it's not profitable to build them because of building codes.
you can build 100k houses in some communities, in any largish city, probably now. land in cities is in high demand, that's why it costs more. regulation via building codes obviously makes everything cost more but location is a larger factor.

Nathaniel Morgan

Which is exactly what eliminating tariffs got us.
uhh... what? are you kidding me? I assume you are advocating isolationist economic policies, in which case I assume you want to work at a foxcon factory for $2 a day? there is a reason america is not a manufacturing economy any more, we upgraded to technology, we use the global economy for our manufacturing needs.
if you don't want to be apart of the global economy prepare to work some very shitty factory jobs, that is after we retool the economic infrastructure we have been building since the 70s at great cost.
remember the great depression? that's what happens when you suddenly drop out of the world economy and try to legislate prices.

depends on the city. land costs are independent of tax rates for the rich or any tax rate for that matter. its based on demand for a finite resource.

if the corporation can profit more by leaving they will. if you make it more expensive to leave via tarrifs then you are punishing the consumer.

Luke Williams
Luke Williams

of course it all had to come crashing down at some point I guess.
not really. the great depression started as a normal recession which was recovering in less than 8 months until Smoot–Hawley tariffs and socialist projects were enacted as a response, which spiraled the economy right down the toilet until we switched to a war economy and abandoned all the retarded isolationist and socialist economic policy after the war.

Back then the taxes just coerced the rich to either invest in assets that could avoid high taxation, like real estate, or just move their money offshore.

Isaac Hernandez

And? So remove incentive. Make taxes here low and tarrifs on products with domestic equivalents higher.
you were close there, the solution is to make taxes lower and reduce federal spending. increasing tarrifs doesn't just hurt consumers it hurts manufacturing. what happens when car companies can't buy Chinese steel because the tarrifs make it just as expensive as american steel? your car costs twice as much. enjoy your 1998 toyota neon because its all you can afford now.

And which is better, factory job or no job?
that's a false dichotomy. america is a technology economy. most of our GDP comes from tech, not manufacturing. I can tell you that a tech job is better (and much higher paying) than a factory job.

Wages go down, so do prices or noone will buy your shit.
if that were true recessions would never happen. if that were true Argentina wouldn't be happening. if wages are going down its because of deflation or recession. deflation will never happen until the fed pulls its head out (so after the next great depression) and you can't lower your prices in a recession if you can't afford to because your already on razor margins (average profit for business in america is 6%, not a lot of wiggle room there). what happens then is industries collapse. like banks in the 30s.

This is of course open to modification baded on needs of domestic businesses. Another important factor is government involvement in union negotiations but I won't get into that.

Argentina is more a case of government meddling paired with haphazard enforcement leading to harming the consumer and renter while not equally controlling producers

Ethan Roberts
Ethan Roberts

huge ass corporations.
where the hell do you think the products you consume come from? did you buy your microprocessor from the mom and pop shop on the corner or from the bult billion dollar corporation, intel? did you get your car made by the bloke across the street or a massive corporation like Ford or Toyota?

face the facts, most of the material goods we consume absolutely need to be produced on massive scale to be affordable as they are now and cannot be produced by small companies. obviously there are many exceptions but most of the high tech, complex goods we consume necessitate massive organizations to produce efficiently.

Juan Parker
Juan Parker

Lets imagine that a business, say corn production, has a value. The government sets up a tax haven on corn investments and the value of corn fields and products shoot up. There is overproduction of corn products, like high fructose corn syrup, and the moment someone calls into question the true value of the corn industry the value will crash and screw the workers, producers, and by extension the economy. This kind of artificial inflation on the true value of something is dangerous. Furthermore how will an industry loose value just because it is not enhanced by the tax haven? It would seem that the industry and its value would grow at an apparent and healthy rate as it grows and meets demand.

Jordan Parker

Parker Lee
Parker Lee

Yeah but wasn't that the point? Either invest the money or get taxed?
'Artificial inflation' of industries is still putting that money to work, instead of letting it stagnate in bank accounts.
And working money means a more active economy means more taxable revenue.

Aren't 'tax havens' usually used to encourage low-profit-but-high-demand industries?
Things people usually don't want to do but everyone still needs?

that's exactly what tariffs are. price fixing is economic suicide. ask the USSR.

open to modification based on needs of domestic businesses.
assuming that can be done correctly (it can't, by the way, pricing is practically infinitely complex due to theinterdependancy of raw materials) what about the needs of consumers? what if I "need" a phone for under $1000 but can no longer get it because your tarrifing apple which has moved to china due to high american tax rates, taking competition away from the few domestic phone makers left and therefore taking away their incentive to charge less?
apply this scenario to any and all products which a domestic competitor.

all this aside, we WANT manufacturing jobs to move out of country. it HELPs us when we can buy chips from foxconn in china for $0.0001 to use in our phones made in Malaysia for less than $5 of labor per unit. if that labor was american, if those chips were american, your phone would cost three grand!

Jace Perry

So you would agree then that taxes are a way to push central planning of the economy. I would say that tax havens manipulate the supply for a given demand in such a way that even if demand is satisfied it is still incentivized to produce more. Also what would happen if the true value of the industries were called into question, causing a scare?

They were corrupted and don't live up to their origins.
they live up to their obligations to their share holders, what more do you want from them? they are simple entities designed to profit and profit alone. this is the only way economies work effectively. profit is THE indicator of what goods are needed and where they are needed. profit should be the only motivation a corporation has. that being said if true corruption exists the penalties for such need to be so harsh that they constitute and effective deterrent for corruption or law breaking. I don't they they are at this time.
don't deserve their positions.

when people profit just by having money in the industry
the only place I know of where people profit from "just having money" is the stock market, and you could still argue for the value of those assets as they represent the public's estimation of a companies value. I don't like the idea of the stock market but I don't think it would be such an issue if not for legislated bailouts and legislated monetary injections into said sock market. if the government would stay the fuck out of the economy things would be much better. the corporate and stock market bailouts basically give your hard earned tax money to the rich and prop up corporations which deserve to fail.

dodging taxes
there is no such thing as dodging taxes, there is just a shitty tax code that is completely unfair. it is not the fault of a corporation or a wealthy person for not taking every break they can, how much money do you donate to the federal government every year? why would you expect anyone else to?

the value and supply doesn't truly match demand
then you have surplus goods or a shortage of goods, depending on the situation, surplus goods is basically throwing money away. too much corn is made, a lot of it is sold dirt cheap over seas as a net loss to US tax payers. we get fucked when this happens. shortages, like in the housing market caused by rent control laws in new york in 1980 caused an almost total collapse on low and medium income housing, building owners literally burned their buildings down to save money because they were a liability instead of an asset. the same thing is happening now in detroit (thanks democrats!)

Building housing requires permits from the government. Banks and real estate financiers often lobby against liberal housing projects inorder to protect their existing investments in housing. You see these rich people got rich by buying crappy houses and restrict new building new houses near major population centers. This will increase even the price of the crappiest crack dens to levels that only a couple decades ago would have been price of a Beverly Hills mansion. It's all about government corruption and crony capitalism where business class and political class have become too much of a good buddies to each other.

The golden age of western civilization had high tax rates and strict separation of private and public sectors. Now these two are becoming more and more intertwined so that it is harder and harder to tell them apart from each other and this is the root of many of the problems in our current system.

the dude that drives that tractor gets a shitty 40k a year salary compared to the owner of the land
and if the farm fails the owner is completely fucked, totally ruined, HIS investment is wiped out. the guy driving the tractor doesn't lose a damn thing except for this job. the reward for labor is commensurate with the risk.

And there are still so many foodstuffs that require handpicking
I am not saying automation has gotten us to a post-scarcity or a post-labor global economy, but it has gotten us (in post industrial economies) very far towards that goal since.

It doesn't help if the poor & stupid run out of jobs & have to rely on welfare to live.
then educate the population. the solution is not to downgrade your economy to one that can be run by an uneducated population!

& which has a never-ending demand?
cord has a much lower demand than it's supply. your taxes pay the difference there.

Full automation and guaranteed basic income aren't completely inconceivable.
your right, in fact i would say they are inevitable.
People would all become neets and fap all day and nothing of interest would ever get done.
this is don't believe. take the farming labor statistic I quoted earlier, over 90% of america were farmers at one point, just because automation got that number down to less than 3% doesn't mean that the other 87% spend all day jerking off. they find other things which are profitable. in the future that will probably be making better robots and software.

liberal housing projects
oh boy I could go on about projects. do you ever wonder why projects always look like shit? because the land lord has no incentive to maintain the buildings because there is no competition in the market. they have no incentive to do so. in fact they have incentive not to spend money because no matter how shitty their housing projects get they will still be rented by the local government. its a disaster. spend the money on basic income if you really care about people who cant afford housing. projects are a complete waste of a building because in 10 years its fucking garbage and needs to be renovated or rebuilt for massive amounts of money.

The golden age of western civilization had high tax rates
not even close. 1950s was horrible for the western world which had just destroyed most of its economic infrastructure for WW2. 1920 is the same way everywhere but america because of WW1. 1800s, when the industrial revolution was getting into full swing was the golden age and taxes were lower than they have been since.

that is completely true. that is a necessity that is no longer being fulfilled (thanks FED and democrats)

yeah its natural when you have the Federal reserve, a fiat currency and interventionist economic policy. it's completely natural.

People's retirements are invested in those companies which 'deserved to fail'.
are those people not responsible for their investment? they should not have invested in those companies. they should not have worked at a company for a pension they would later lose when the company sank. they should have more wisely invested. their failures, however unintentional or tragic are not a good enough reason to bail out failing companies. "too big to fail" means YOUR paying it with your taxes.

Meddling in the market to rescue good businesses which were swept up in a catastrophic, orchestrated, irrational panic is better than letting tens of millions of people lose all their savings and watching the economy tank just so the richest fuckers alive can successfully play the system and reap the savings of the entire nation.

Easton Adams
Easton Adams

which bailouts are you referring to? because I can argue against each one specifically if you wish. if you want to be rational about it use the bailout money to pay the pensions or investments of those who would have lost them. do not prop up a failed business.
also, tens of millions? economy tanking? no way. the loss of GM, for example, would have affected millions but other companies would have baught out the GM assets and likely kept most of the GM employees to run their newly purchased factories. just because GM goes under doesn't mean you burn down the factories and send all their employees to the welfare office. those other companies that would have purchased the GM assets would have used them better too! because they are not so incompetent to require a bailout.

arguing specific bailouts
Fuck that. I don't have the time and frankly I'm not well versed enough to represent my positions in a technical argument.

tens of millions, economy tanking
As I understand it, it was the banks collapsing that would have done everything in. They'd all invested in eachother & propped up their shitty investments- if one failed, they'd all fail, as suddenly everyone's assets were worthless. Which means everyone who relied on those banks for business or to hold their cash would lose everything there.
Failures would just cascade as people/businesses lost all access to any money and failed to pay their bills, which would cause more people to fail.

they don't burn down the factories & send the employees to the welfare office
That's exactly what they'd do.
They'd take the cream of the crop, burn down everything else and send 70% of the employees to the welfare office.
Perhaps more, if the economy tanks and they don't have the money to invest in an acquisition.

Oliver Long
Oliver Long

the banks collapsing
alright I'll give you my take on the 2008 mortgage bank bailouts although I'm no expert.
basically republicans were trying to pass regulations on the mortgage industry pre-08' crash and that got shot down by democrats, the FED (they have a hand in every economic fuck up) encouraged people to get variable rate mortgages which can fuck you over if interest rates rise, the Clinton administration relaxed requirements for getting home loans in the 90s, letting people buy houses they couldn't really afford and wall street not correctly evaluating the risk of those mortgages before they sold the loan assets to investors. so now banks and investors own the mortgage assets of all these people who have houses they can't afford, these people were basically scammed by mortgage brokers due to a lack of regulation there also, they started at a low interest they could afford but later got too expensive, didn't stop the mortgage companies from selling to them though because they often sell the mortgage asset to other people, they are just a middle man in most cases.

the thing about mortgage assets is they are historically a really good investment because one doesn't typically give a mortgage to someone unlikely to pay it back, that, thanks to the FED and Clinton and the democrats blocking regulation wasn't the case this time. so you have billions in mortgage assets that are defaulted on when the fed raises mortgage interest rates by a fuck ton in 2007-2008 and they become worthless as the banks reposes massive numbers of homes.

cont, 1/2...

John Hall
John Hall

cont 2/2...

two bailouts happened, one to the home owners, the federal government offered to refinance the loans at 90% - this bailout I think was a good thing. the other bailout was to the banks that traded these risky assets, these banks deserve to go under for being incompetent. they got rich by taking advantage of stupid poor people who can't to interest rate math and don't understand mortgages then got rewarded by the government when their scheme came crashing down around them.
of course if the FED didn't control interest rates this would have never happened. also if there were real penalties on trading worthless assets like risky mortgages this probably would not have happened.

so I think bailouts are OK if they are bailing out people who got fucked by corporations, I do not think corporate or wall street bailouts are ever OK.

For anybody running a business that can't even sustain itself without tax breaks, just remember that you have a weak bloodline, end of story.

100$ to a bent button that 'regulation' would have done exactly the opposite of what it claimed.
OR it had some other toxic clause in it.
clinton admin relaxing requirements
Again, a million to 1 this was a concession to the republicans as some part of a larger deal.

Sounds like a lack of regulation is what caused it. Better regulation is traditionally part of the democrat platform, while less/worse is part of the republicans'.

bailouts for people vs businesses
I suspect the way they did it was the cheapest way it could be done.
They didn't particularly LIKE saving the asshats who caused it, but would prefer to spend $700bn on that than some ass-pull amount like $3tn your way.

if not for the fed this would never have happened
I get the feeling bubbles don't last forever- if the fed hadn't popped it, (assuming they did), something else would have.

https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/109/s190

Again, a million to 1 this was a concession to the republicans as some part of a larger deal.
no way.
In 1999, President Bill Clinton signed into law Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which repealed portions of the Glass-Steagall Act. Economist Joseph Stiglitz criticized the repeal of the Act. He called its repeal the "culmination of a $300 million lobbying effort by the banking and financial services industries..."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_policies_and_the_subprime_mortgage_crisis

Sounds like a lack of regulation is what caused it.
yes, that's right. the bush administration is also to blame because the problem was known and they did nothing about it, probably due to the huge lobbying effort by wallstreet and public ignorance of complex shit like this.

I suspect the way they did it ...
government never does it the cheapest way.
like $3tn your way.
doubt it. but that's my opinion.

I get the feeling bubbles...
the FED is what causes bubbles in the first place by lowering interest rates. normal currencies don't work like our fiat currency. the FED can inflate and deflate as they wish by printing money or taking it out of circulation. printing money make the economy look good and gives all the new money to banks and rich people but devalues the USD making savings worth less. its not good.

Yeah, the scrapyard ...
I doubt it.

I'm not saying not bailing out the banks would have saved more money then bailing them out I am saying they deserve to fail, at least as a hard warning to every other financial institution that if you fuck around you get fucked, not rewarded.

the swiss just had a vote for basic income. basically they will tax everyone enough to pay everyone a certain amount per month as a safety net. this only works if you have a very low participation in the social safety net already which some European countries do (but not for long). in Scandinavia people on welfare are almost exclusively immigrants.

I think that's just wishful thinking
I have to agree with you there, that doesn't mean some half commie state wont try it. the scandies and the swiss are pretty close.

Also in this imagined future I don't think it would be monoculture
there is still the asian cultures which are just as nationalistic and racist as they always have been.

Thinking the West will preserve itself is wishful thinking

you remember hearing about all the booms and busts pre 1900? no? there was no FED back then. free markets are incredibly rugged. you can have entire markets collapse due to innovation or new competition and not have a recession so long as the FED isn't there pumping money into the system ruining the value of a dollar. if you think the FED is at all a good thing you should really look into it further. there are a multitude of reasons why the FED is a horrible horrible idea, mainly the inevitable instability it introduces to a currency. how can a market work when the currency it operates on is volatile? not very well.

The people responsible for those decisions would have coasted to their next CEO job.
not so much. you sink a few companies and your done as a CEO unless you gather your own assets and start your own company.
Only the workers, the retired, and the poor would have suffered.
when shit happens people suffer. what about the tax payers who payed for the bailouts? they don't matter to you? I get that when people get fucked its a tragedy but you don't resolve someone getting robbed by robbing their neighbor to pay them back.

rich ought to get taxed to pay for it.
that is philosophically immoral and objectively unfair. you think you know better than the market what should get human resources. I hate to break it to you but you don't. your basically advocating socialist ideals and they have been tried time and time again. read about the economists who ran the USSR back in the day to get an idea of just how badly this line of thinking can get, of just how inefficient, of just how impotent it is compared to market prices.

I've heard some of the most incredible bubbles occurred before 1900- like the colossal east India crash.
But I don't think looking back that far is very practical anyway- looking at how markets worked pre-electricity seems..like apples & oranges. Far too much has happened between now & then.

CEOs are finished & taxpayers suffered
Bullshit. After the 08 crisis we were hearing monthly reports on CEOs who fucked up getting bonuses 'just because', being promoted, and getting rehired all the time. Being the CEO of a fortune-500 company, even if it went down the shitter, is a nice little star on your resume. And they had enough money to weather any unemployment comfortably anyway.

Tax payers benefited from the bail-out. The economy didn't crash and the loans taken out by the businesses have all been paid back with interest.

As for free markets, I'm with you. They're a great economic system, the best, but they have to be protected from themselves.
A completely unrestrained free market is at best a race to the bottom of short-term profit & at worst the winners subvert the market & eliminate their competition anyway.
And yeah, the market isn't omnipotent & omniscient. It isn't even very wise, and often irrational- it's just profitable.
If we need anything that isn't immediately profitable, or benefits the society instead of the individual, capitalism just won't get it done. There's no incentive.

We do need SOME central planning.

As for unfairness, a lot of rich people seem to think they don't owe anyone anything. The roads they drive on, the safe societ(ies) they do business in, they are doing very well in this world.
And they think they did it all themselves.

If they're raking in 50% of the income & hold 90% of the wealth, they've got to pay taxes equivalent to it.

dude you are so fucking stupid you can see the space station with a telescope clearly. you are hopelessly lost to your own confirmation bias. the only soils I have here is the knowledge that you will make a massive fool out of yourself for the rest of your life when you tell people about flat earth. spread the word, leaf. the world deserves to know (how stupid you are).

Flat worlders come from the same broken logic as people who believe in FTL.

"What? i can't have what i want? i'll just make excuses to make the bad reality go away!"

Same arguments, too. "science is always wrong, we can't know for certain, that's what they said about airplanes, etc etc"

humans are incapable of being rational when it comes to things they want.

Quite a (((coincidence))) that it's only people from Five Eyes disagreeing.

The Five Eyes, often abbreviated as FVEY, are an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. These countries are bound by the multilateral UKUSA Agreement, a treaty for joint cooperation in signals intelligence.

Not a single refutation offered by any in disagreement that rose above ad-hominem. Your handlers should have trained you better, if you pretend to respond with science at least that way it would be up to the would-be dupe to figure out the deception instead of seeing that you have no solid argument.

Charles Murphy

You know, I love this ignorant argument, as if none of the problems in government are due to privatizers coming in, filling their payrolls with shitskins, fucking everything up, and costing way more than quadrupling the "unsustainable" pensions ever could. And then the same retards who bought the lie that the private sector magically never wastes or fails and voted in other retards who gave them exactly what they wanted turn around and blame the public sector for everything that they warned would happen.

we are talking about american free market economics which essential stopped existing when the FED was created, there were no crashes in america before 1900. the east india company wasn't in america and wasn't due to free market forces.

Being the CEO of a fortune-500 company, even if it went down the shitter, is a nice little star on your resume.
no, its not. thats like saying being lawer who never won a case is a nice little star. doesn't work that way, champ.

The economy didn't crash and the loans taken out by the businesses have all been paid back with interest.
the economy did crash, worse than it has in decades, by the way, and the businesses have no obligation and will never pay back the tax payer's bailout money.

Tax payers benefited from the bail-out.
you cannot know that since you don't know what would have been the result in the opposite scenario. you are just assuming and not even providing supporting material for the assumption, forgive me if that doesn't change my mind.

winners subvert the market & eliminate their competition anyway.
no, monopolies cannot exist in a free market.

market isn't omnipotent & omniscient. It isn't even very wise, and often irrational- it's just profitable.
you don't understand what price/profit represents in a market. I would start with a book on basic economics, i recommend tomas sowells book, basic economics.

There's no incentive.
wrong. your mistake here is not realizing that society IS individuals and there wants are represented by what they are willing to pay for which the market recognizes by the price of things. there is literally nothing that capitalism cannot provide. before you bring up homelessness and poverty you should understand that these were basically not a problem pre-1900.

SOME central planning.
see the anons post above, the image with the beavers, it explains nicely why small government is to be preferred. ultimately humans are too short sighted to run an economy.

a lot of rich people seem to think they don't owe anyone anything.
pure assumption

The roads they drive on, the safe societ(ies) they do business in
they pay taxes just like you, in fact they pay more taxes at a higher rate than you.
And they think they did it all themselves.
you cannot speak for another person like that, pure assumption, pure dogma, pure bullshit.

If they're raking in 50% of the income & hold 90% of the wealth, they've got to pay taxes equivalent to it.
top 5% "rakes in" 20% of the money and pays 51% of the income tax revenue. bottom 50% pays 2% of the taxes. its already rigged against them.
wealthy people get wealth by creating value, thats why people pay them, for things wihch have value. they EARNED that money. it is not for you to steal just because you think you know better than them what it should be spent on. you are nothing but a fascist dictator without the power, willing to steal money from certain people by force of violence because you think you have all the answers, you think your infallible.

any image that proves you wrong you will just say is CG. go and find a local astronomers club and ask one of the members who owns a telescope to point it at the space station for you. go to some real effort instead of watching uneducated retards babble on youtube about shit they will never understand all day.

no, seriously, someone could take you up to the ISS in a fucking space shuttle and give you a tour and you would claim it was all CG. that's how biased you are. I just gave you a fool proof way to show yourself the truth and you won't even consider it. you can take a picture of the ISS as it crosses the sun in the sky with a moderate zoom lens and super fast aperture and see it's shape clearly. there are so many ways to prove this to yourself but you will do none of them because your lazy and more importantly, stupid.

he uses that money to buy a gazillion houses and rents them to the poor at a grand a month

And he buys a yacht, and a private jet, and a Malibu mansion

Now there will be 50 people working in his mansion,
Someone had to build that Yacht, and someone needs to service it,
Same with the plane, it needed to be built, and needs to be serviced,
That means he gives jobs to people in marina, and on airport, to his yacht crew, and plane crew.

So this ebil, ebil rich person just created several hundred jobs just by spending his monies on stupid frivolities.

AND then he gives affordable, hight quality housing to people rich enough to afford it, but not wealthy enough to build their own houses.

You would take his 500M, and give it back to 200M americans under some imaginary line. So after the government takes its shave, all of them get less then 2$ in food stamps. World is a better place, good job

they feel more of a burden when half their income is taken from them. the poor pay very little tax. you seem to be blaming poverty on those who are not poor. you seem to basically be a socialist.
if that's the case i think we are too far apart to come to a consensus here. I recommend you listen to milton freedman talks on youtube for a while (or read his books) if you want to see where I'm coming from. I get where your coming from but I feel your solution of wealth redistribution not only doesn't work but causes more problems in the process. see any true socialist country or any democratic socialist country that isn't a mono culture.

not how it works champ
yeah it is. It's more like they're a big-shot lawyer that lost a big case and got fired.
Sure, he fucked up, but everything that got him hired at the big-shot law firm is still there.
That can be seen as a bargain for mid-level companies which would have only dreamed of hiring someone like that before they fucked up.

monopolies can't exist in a free market
And free markets can't exist without regulation.
They inevitably give rise to the monopolies which destroy them.

Society is individuals
Yeah, I get it, society determines the value of things.
A capitalist economy works by letting individuals pursue their own self-interest & aligning that interest with those of society. It's incredibly efficient.
But people are short-sighted, as is society at large.
Just to be lazy, I'll just point at the nash equilibrium and say I'm a fan.
The old 'we all go for the blonde' thing.

More like pure anecdote. I've seen the shitty internet blogposts and whatnot.
Assholes do exist. And they all tend to think taxes are stealing from them.

rigged against the wealthy
yeah, those poor oppressed rich people, with their massive expendable income & enough wealth to put half the country into retirement. The system's rigged I tell ye, RIGGED.
See So what if they've got a 50% tax rate. They need 10% to live well, 20% to live luxuriously.
Poor people need 90% to live at all.

And you need money to make money. It's far easier for someone with 500k$ of swinging-dick money to make 100k$ than for some schmuck with 500$ in their savings account.

Call me a fascist dictator all you want.
Money's better spent than saved when it comes to the economy.
Rich people hoard it, poor people spend it.

Oh here he goes again. Look at you Canada, posting here thinking you just said some smart shit.

Out of all countries that post here Canadians are the ones that piss me off the most. Their entire fucking culture makes no sense. What exactly is it that you do? Wear flannel shirts and slurp syrup?

If I think of America I think of guns, pop culture and freedom. Sure, lots of ignorant baboons but at least they wear their retardation like a badge of honor, use it as a cultural identity, their flag promotes the unity of the country with all these stripes and stars.

Germany is orderly, a country that prides itself on its rules and their citizens who follow them. It's also the country with the biggest responsibility when it comes to destroying Europe with its two world wars and government sanctioned refugee crisis. Their flag waves strong colors, black, red and gold. A dominant flag for a dominant country.

Russia is strong and stubborn to a fault. They live hard lives and don't complain about it. Obviously the entire country is pretty much a shithole but it breeds strong people who can take care of themselves. Their flag represents the cold, the white, the blue but also the burning passion in the red, it all comes together to signify that their country is bleak but there is strength in that.

But Canada, what are they fucking known for? Being "nice", i guess? Is that your role in the world? Being fucking nice? That's not an achievement. Everyone can be nice. It's easy to be nice. You just don't have to say anything bad. So what did your fucking country decide to put on their flag to show the entire world what Canada is all about? A leaf. A FUCKING LEAF. You decided that you like to slurp your shitty syrup so damn much that you might as well put the fucking leaf that it's made of on the flag. You don't even respect your own country so why the hell should I.

you think so? look at any failed corporation and check into the CEO that failed them.
Steve Ballmer, John Sculley, etc. steve didn't even do that badly, they never worked as CEOs again. your simply wrong on this and I think it's because you don't really know about CEOs and how competitive the job is. if you don't make profit you are fucked as a CEO. straight fucked.

And free markets...
what is hong kong
what is most of america during manifest destiny?
They inevitably give ris..
that is just wrong my friend. just check this short video out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdLBzfFGFQU

But people ...
right but that doesn't argue for any point you have made.

yeah, those poor oppressed rich people
they are oppressed.
like you said they are not as impacted as the poor but their wealth is being taken at a much greater rate than the poor. I'm not feeling sorry for the rich being taxed I am just exercising an objective morality which makes it clear that they have the right to their property just as much as a poor person.

They need 10%...
you do not understand that they use their wealth to create more value to society and they are in a unique position to do so. it takes a lot of money to open a new walmart, you can't do it but the rich owner can. take away all their money and businesses suddenly stop growing. what really upsets you is that they are able to get more extraneous material goods than you because of their wealth. you would not take all of walmarts profits so they could not open new stores or give employees raises but you would take all of the owners money, failing to realize that he earned that money by providing value to society just as much as the McDonalds cashier.

Money's better spent ...
yes I agree

Rich people hoard it
but they never used to. look at the money corporations keep over time. only recently has it become significant. its because the currency is volatile thanks to the FED. they would be stupid not to.
