  • The One Economic Chart That Really Matters [View article]
    I'd go so far as to say both sides are corrupt and can be easily bought if bribed with enough lobbyist money. So merely voting for one of the two parties isn't enough to fix it.

  • The wealth gap is an essential driver of entrepreneurial creativity, and there’s no way to reduce it unless we want to strangle progress, John Tamny writes. "Wealth at the far end of the income curve [has] distracted us from realizing how much better we live thanks to wealth creation, and how much better off we are in relative terms owing to individuals pursuing innovative ideas."  [View news story]
    I would say just close the loopholes that the top 1% are enjoying. The average actual tax rate paid by the top 400 earners is around 17%. Meanwhile, the middle class is paying around 40% once you include Medicare, Social Security, and State Tax.

    Nope, not when the top 5% own more than the bottom 95% combined.

    It should reasonably be within range of the rest of the developed world, not Zimbabwe.

    How about we get back to a progressive tax system then? The top 1% is paying a much lower tax rate than all of us "average" workers.

  • AT&T Gets Cynical [View article]
    Uh, hate to break it to you but the *theoretical* max bandwidth for WiMax is currently 75Mbps, so I dunno how you get those numbers.

    Plus if you wanted 1Gbps, there's not enough spectrum let alone how much the backhaul network would cost the service providers.

  • The Stimulus Plan Is Starting to Stink [View article]
    Well, if you're trying to play politics, this is a brilliant article. Criticize Obama for the stimulus plan. If the economy shows signs of strength, pick certain pork products in that stimulus and talk about how government wastes tax payer money. If there's no sign of strength or if the economy doesn't turn around or the stimulus plan doesn't get passed, go ahead and blame him for not properly handling the economy.

    This is the same kind of doublespeak that led to "the Fundamentals of the Economy are Strong" statements.
