    a fleet of 747s.

  • Why Piketty Is Wrong: Part 1 - The Math [View article]
    After reading the two articles, which addresses this debate
    more in layman terms, rather than econo-speak, which requires
    an interpreter, Mr Piketty's book and theory simply addresses what
    the left views as inadequate income inequality (iii)..

    The fix is simply more of the same old F-A-I-L-E-D attempts, that has
    been done before...Paint over rust and trust.

    Just another redistribution and taxing plan...Mr Piketty, is devoid of
    any historical perspectives and thus shall repeat the same old mistakes.

    Remove personal incentives and you destroy production...I learned that
    in Head Start, along with my classmates.

    -He also believes that tax rates don’t impact economic growth. Given this, (and the fact that he is a French leftist), it is not surprising that Piketty’s solution to inequality is even more progressive taxation."

    EGR, have you forgotten what has happen in EuroLand
    in the past few years...They are losing their competitive
    edge to Asia and elsewhere...Speaking about France's
    GNP growth rate, since 1978 it has averaged an paltry 1.8%,
    not something I wish to aspire to.

    And if people think our southern borders are a problem, Europe
    has a much greater pressing southern border issue.

    "Today's conservative in the US talks like an anarchist, while today's liberal in the US spouts recommendations that seem like they are coming from a conservative."

    Inane from the start to the end.

    "Anyway, a higher tax on financial capital, so that it is in line with the tax on labor, certainly makes solid economic sense as means towards diverting capital away from financial speculation into real production."

    Those that wish to divert capital from either labor or the financial sector to the least productive - governmental units, can only have a political agenda in mind rather than maximizing market efficiency.

    " It may not make many people happy, but it is the right thing to do, if you care about society as a whole."

    The $15 trillion spent on Social Engineering has not only not worked but
    has give us the Food Stamp Recovery...It is just another Cash for Clunker Governments.

    the Soup Nazi episode.

    Mr Mause, I eagerly await your next article.

    "It is interesting that many of the largest fortunes (Gates, Slim, the Waltons, Ellison) have not really been earned in finance."

    Excellent point, Mr Mause...In fact, among the top 50 wealthiest
    in the world, none came from the banking or financial sector and
    only four from the investment industry.

    I perceive Mr Piketty's entire heretic to be a canard, as only
    the market place can be the sole arbitrator of the valve of labor
    and capital.
