Tax

this private corporatism “the planet is owned by the highest bidder” (who has access (!) to the cheapest loan of a private bank) is the true devil of our times.

Selfishness and greed are the exact opposite of love – and might kill all of mankind.

Climatechange is just a sideffect of that – it is just more profitable to destroy the planet and the climate – than to restore the balance – this only can end deadly.

Survey: Capitalism ‘doing more harm than good,’ and technology is ‘out of control’

  • real sense of unfairness
    • According to Edelman, 56% of respondents question capitalism as it exists today. The survey also found that 78% of respondents agreed with the statement that “regular people struggle just to pay their bills as elites get richer than they deserve.”

  • “the system is not working for most people”

Wealth and income inequality has reached, as it did then (1920s), a Dimension in which the power of the rich and the blackmail of democratically elected politicians become so great that democracy threatens to become a Farce.

homo economicus – update to status quo – welcome to the 20s (2020) – where are we?

when the future is supposed to look like this:

WE NEED A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE!

Trump Tax Cut Hands $32 Billion Windfall to America’s Top Banks

“GREAT” Isn’t it? X-D

i am very sure, the banks will use this money to make this world a better place… or maybe not.
Trump just does EXACTLY the opposite of what Mr Bregman would do – he further increases the gap between rich and poor and thus asks for more social unrest and trouble on the street.
How can the bankers enjoy driving a Ferrari when it is either stuck in a traffic jam or light up on fire by protest?
The most useless parts of society – the financial sector – the bankers – get a tax gifts – while the poor majority will see TAX INCREASES!
The game is: take from the poor – give to the rich – it is basically monetary aristocracy (the fact that some people have more privileges / access to resources than others / own more companies land and resources thus are entitled to more monetary income – even without work)
Don’t get me wrong – i am all in for entrepreneurship – creative ideas that make the everyday life of everybody better – while making a profit.
For example i am all in for: Tesla and SpaceX making a profit WHILE advancing mankind – but i am very much against people who earn money without creating value in any term of that sense and sorry to say – bankers and lawyers usually fall in the later category.
Trump should have given tax gifts to SpaceX and Tesla for creating innovative products that could save mankind from extinction.
But no – why not bail out the banks – once more?
This is simply corruption and exactly the kind of aristocracy that Americans 1776 fought against by gaining their independence from the aristocracy of England and their colony profiteering based on exploitation – and the US was just another colony to England and France and Spain.
So this planet is “just another colony” to Donald Duck Trump and the bankers?

“A rising tide lifts all boats”

is unfortunately not working Mr Kennedy – because the “trickle-down effect” does not work (the rich simply do not do enough investments into the REAL ECONOMY to lift any of the small boats).

The financial sector does not generate value in any of it’s terms.

  • Meanwhile lending slowed, job cuts mounted and dividends rose

that’s it Mr Trump: “IMPEACH ‘EM!”

it really seems like it.

Did he and Warren figure out, they can’t take it to heaven?

Or is it more like a new year’s pledge? “next year, i will promise to pay more taxes”

okay cynicism and skepticism aside – a lot of CEOs say the government is not setting enough high standards – for companies to abide by – at the same time they pay  thousands of lobbyists in Washington, in Brussels, in Berlin to do the exact opposite.

So it’s like: “i want to be good, but i bribe you and you do evil, so how can i be good if you are not good?” (self cheating?)

let’s give am another chance to right the wrong, before they die (hopefully) of natural causes, read the original blog article:

https://www.gatesnotes.com/About-Bill-Gates/Year-in-Review-2019

“To solve the problem, Gates said the U.S. government should raise taxes that affect the wealthy.

“I’m for a tax system in which, if you have more money, you pay a higher percentage in taxes. I think the rich should pay more than they currently do, and that includes Melinda and me,” Gates wrote, referring to his wife.

“I don’t see any reason to favor wealth over work the way we do today,” he wrote. It’s “the clearest evidence I’ve seen that the system isn’t fair,” he said.”

… Trump will NEVER do that.

Everyone is afraid – the Super rich might flee the country to some tax heaven.

So the only way this would work – is if the US would push the rest of the world to a tax-standard – that can not be escaped on a global scale – or Luxembourg you will be sanctioned.

The GDP of Luxembourg is solely based on tax-cheating.

They produce nothing.

Google ends it’s “Irish Double Sandwich” tax-cheating policy in Ireland (https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/31/google-to-end-double-irish-dutch-sandwich-tax-scheme.html)

The EU even struggles to allow country-by-country reporting… (to see how much money Amazon makes in a specific country and how much tax is paid in that country).

I and Mr Bregman

welcome their statements – but will believe Bill and Warren when i see it happening.

Hope Bill and Warren invite Mr Bregman to their states and talk about what changes are necessary.

This could also mean: The bank centric debt-based monetary system (almost all currencies) the Dollar and the Euro are on the brink of collapse in value – because billions and trillions were printed in cash by central banks and digital by private banks to get inflation going to devalue the massive amounts of money the super rich have in their bank accounts.

Some are spending it on startups – which is a good thing to do – but probably just a fraction of the super rich.

“While Cuban has called paying taxes “patriotic,” he also suggests founders and owners should distribute stock in the company to employees to bring them into the investor class.

Gates also said in Tuesday’s blog post that the U.S. should have a higher estate tax, which would affect the rich.

“A dynastic system where you can pass vast wealth along to your children is not good for anyone; the next generation doesn’t end up with the same incentive to work hard and contribute to the economy,” Gates said.

(means: his kids are spoiled)
