I'll have the redcoats you can have Mandrake

It was a paraphrase from general Ripper in the movie Dr. Strangelove. A classic movie.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Exporting to the USA is now a politically risky business. Chinese factories should take steps to reduce their exposure to the USA market by cutting the number and size of US orders. US importers are going to go out of business if Trump pushes ahead with his tariffs. For an order of $1,000,000 worth of goods, a 25% tariff equals $250,000. No US importer will survive having to pay 25%  when their profit margin are in the 10% to 20% range.

I was born in the US during the Eisenhower administration when the tax rates on the rich were 90%. S ...

Wha: The US government in the past confiscated 90% of a rich person's income. No wonder several US presidents had to cut the tax down to a more palatable dimension.

To be honest: 30% still is a bit high but it is more fair than paying 90%. Whatever has the country done for a rich person who had to donate 90% of his or her income?

Irrelevant twaddle. What person in the possession of his faculties allows others to steal 90T of his salary and bonus out of his wallet?
