Expatriate I'm going to let you in on a secret that's very topical.
Investment doesn't always amount to much, doesn't do anything except make paper. Notice we're in a bit of a bind right now? Investors investing in investments on investments, credit default swaps with your derivatives? We tried all that, especially for the past 8 years. Many write it off to lessons learned, still some dead enders haven't caught on.
Time to start making things not paper.
Now if you wanted to expand the discussion to other sources of tax revenue, I'd be willing to argue that one too, because those 1 percenters pay a higher share of those, too
How about payroll? compare the top .1%, making over 24 million. Oops.
People always try to put the working poor down as if they are paying nothing, not true, look at my first chart that cowgal didn't like so much.
