“As long as you do, indeed, pay your fair share of taxes, I don't think most will have a problem with you. But you should also graciously accept tax increases if the need for revenue is desperate so that those who are in dire straits are not required to pay more. You reaped the bounty when times were good.”

“After America goes to a balanced budget, special interest tax exemptions and exclusions ar eliminated, the size and scope of government is substantially reduced and we are still short of money, talk to me about paying more taxes. Until then, it is nothing but throwing good money after bad money into the black hole of government. Wall street the banks and big corporations are merely symptoma of the problem we face, it is not the cause. The root cause is Congress, both Republicans and Democrats and that is where the protests need to be focused. When that happens, you will see me there with you on the picket lines.”

“Those that are in "dire straits" are provided for by numerous government programs and do not pay taxes anyway, except perhaps sales and even that is questionable. The millionaires are the ones that pay 70% of the tax "revenue" it is the super rich who do not pay due to loopholes (passive income=15% capital gains tax). And even if the super rich were taxed at 99% it would not put a dent in US debt.
The real problem is government spending, if the american people have to budget and cannot spend more than they take in, why is the government allowed to operate in an irresponsible way? The government continues to grow and add programs based on borrowed money. Wars, $300,000 Farmville studies, $175 million to maintain unused buildings...the list goes on. A corrupt and wasteful bureaucracy allowed to continue by citizens who continue to demand increased taxes.”
Paul Krugman: 'Whole Nature Of Our Society At Stake' In Inequality Debate

Paul Krugman: 'Whole Nature Of Our Society At Stake' In Inequality Debate

Commented Nov 4, 2011 at 16:18:04 in Business

“So, we can gather from these statistics:

- Half of those in the lowest 20% income bracket remain there after *ten years*
- Who replaced the half that moved out? Probably new entrants into the workforce, and people who fell from the second 20%.
- Where did the 75% in the top .01% bracket go? To the bottom? I bet not. They probably changed places with some folks in the top .02% bracket.

Income mobility seems not so great, really, and just because a large percentage drift slightly over one boundary or another over time is irrelevant.

Incidentally, for households, the lowest quintile make from $0 - $18,500. The second-lowest make $18,500 - $34,700.”

“The wealthy are accustomed to taking most newly-created real wealth while giving workers a subsistence-level stream from it, along with a few scraps of imaginary future wealth.

Now newly-created real wealth is much harder to come by (thanks to dwindling prospects of continued supplies of cheap energy) and imaginary future wealth is revealed as an illusion. Regardless, the wealthy cannot bring themselves to share their existing wealth (accumulated under false future promises). It seems the only logical way forward is for all redundant workers to... go away.”

“Organic farming cannot sustain the Earth's population. There is no way out of this without a drastic reduction in the number of humans and/or a new source of cheap, plentiful, portable energy to replace petroleum.”

MBryant on Aug 25, 2011 at 13:42:08

“Organic farming can sustain the Earth's population. All we need to do to have sustainability in food is go vegetarian. We can then have higher quality food and not worry so much about quanitites of water and land. And it's going to happen - because humans adapt to survive and that's the sustainable answer.”
