  1. Won’t stop many people searching for yet another reason why taxes must be much, much, higher.

    As everyone knows, *I* can spend *your* money better than you can. It is the basic assumption of every Arts graduate ever. Even if they are not socialists.

    Come to think it, Genghiz Khan probably thought the same. And acted on it. Nothing ever changes.

  2. I think it’s obvious. “My policy-based evidence-making is settled science, yours is denialist propaganda”. There, that settles it.

    What I want to know is what the Pilkettys and others do when they find out that inequality continues to increase even with an 80% top tax rate. And is it really right not to be worried about that at all?

  3. Tim is on record as saying that you don’t need a sodding great Wealth Tax in the manner of Picketty: a sodding great Land Tax will do as well.He is probably right but it is not the taxless nirvana that Romantic laissez fairees skipped through the daffodils to celebrate. But the World’s most thorough Romantic, not Wordsworth ,but Adam Smith, backed his belief in the” natural course of things”, doing all the heavy lifting, by a Land Tax.
    As for the routine abuse of arts graduates on this site: they can detect Romantic flim flam even in Economics.They do not think that vast man-made institutions can operate without human intervention as rigorous materialist “Scientists” seem to do.
    ( Professor Soddy, the only proper Nobel prize winning Scientist to turn his attention to Economics ,because he thought that the benefits of technological advance were being wasted by the Economic system, realised straight off ,in the 1920’s that banks create money: something that lesser scientific brains on this site cannot get their superstitious heads around.)
