Why the Rich Should Pay More Taxes.

As  teachers I and my son spend our time developing skills, imparting knowledge, giving direction, encouragement and self-esteem to my students.   As a nurse my son saves lives regularly and makes people better.   There are millions of support staff in the social services, police, fire service, shops, food stores, refuse workers, sewage workers, road sweepers, dentists, construction workers, road maintenance, telephone servicers, doctors, and thousands of other roles - whose function is not to create wealth but to support those who do. Without them the country does not function.   No creator of wealth can function on their own. They require the support of the rest of society - whether that be directly or indirectly.   Society provides the infrastructure that is required for wealth cr…

Nationalized Nepotism

There are always memorable people in our lives, some good memories, some bad, or some people just make an impression on you. That would be several of the people with whom I went to college. One of them dressed to the nines every day in college, or at least in all of the classes that I had with the p…

A narrative is not a stereotype. A stereotype may well come out of it. A narrative is an underlying story that many people buy into, often at an often subliminal level. The WASP narrative is a strong one that needs constantly countering.    We all buy into a narrative of one kind or a…

Tax Cuts

Clarity on the winners and losers of the Republican tax cuts is important for taxpayers, because it signals what legislators aim to accomplish and the effects of the tax cuts on them. Tax cuts reduce government revenue and if government spending is not reduced by the same amount of the tax cuts, the…

The Past is Not Always Greener!

How is that when you lose someone you loved, whether it be through death or the break-up of a relationship, you always glorify the past? I suppose that’s a good thing when it comes to death – it’s the mind’s auto-mechanism of softening the pain. After all, when someone you lo…

We all pay for death taxes

Of all the proposals in the House and Senate tax reform bill, in my humble opinion, taking the pain out of death taxes is the most helpful for the economy.  For those that don’t know, death taxes are taxes your estate pays when you die.  It looks likely that the tax reform bill will …

A major problem with any government, including our republic, is being able to trust those who work on the inside.

Automation saves American jobs

Because automation generally requires fewer workers with greater skills, locations with lower wages are less desirable.  Essentially automation reduces the pressure to shift production due to wage demands from organized labor.   The real lesson is that we're paying today for the …
