Snippa speaks!

Third, we know that when George W Bush permitted such a low tax on repatriations during his time in office it did not promote investment or growth. It did instead let profits flow to shareholders by way of dividends or share buy backs at low rates. I am sure the same thing will happen this time.

And then what happened to the money?

After those investors had paid their taxes (15% income tax on dividends, perhaps 20% on capital gains) what did they do with it?

They either invested it or spent it upon consumption. Those being the only two things that can be done with it.

The tuberous snippa would improve the quality of his economic analysis if he were able to actually work his way through an economic question or example….

Fourth, whatever anyone thinks about the Laffer curve we know that cuts to rates of around 35% reduce revenue.

Which is to think that the US only has the Federal tax system. Which ain’t true of course, whether we are talking individual or corporate income taxes….

Perhaps it’s time to stop using the polite snippa. Already.

  1. The man himself of course makes far more cash than he spends due to his frugal lifestyle. Since he’s hoarding that cash, by his own definition, he’s not investing or spending, and is therefore a cunt.

  2. Ok, who got this by Spud?

    “The claims that it imposed a cost have largely been proved untrue”

    Quite so. I’m all in favour of country-by-cuntry reporting.

  3. They say a good economist considers both the seen and the unseen.

    What, though, do you call someone who can’t even see the bleedin’ obvious?

    — “Perhaps they burnt the cash”

    Which itself would be an act of generosity to every other owner of American dollars.

  4. “Because in order to solve the problems of sexism, we need to find a new way to say cunt.” Why? What’s wrong with ‘quim’?

  5. I’ve never heard “quim” used in polite company nor to a 5 year old girl. Have you? But it all amounts to a Swedish woman mistakenly thinking that there is no polite word for the cunt in English. “Front bottom” seems to work well enough in all circles.

  6. It did instead let profits flow to shareholders by way of dividends or share buy backs at low rates.

    We non-cunts call it “Investors getting a return on their investment”.

    Cunt is too polite a word for that cunt.

  7. “I’ve never heard “quim” used in polite company nor to a 5 year old girl.” Well it’s time it was. Beautiful word, without the harshness of cvnt or the formality (and frequent inaccuracy) of the latinate words.

  8. Quim has had 300 years to be normalised. Only a Cantab would think that civilisation could be resisted so long for so little point
