I soooooooooooooooo agree!
I soooooooooooooooo agree!
that guy is great!!! not sure if its a true letter, but everything there is so wise.
From the page: "You see, I'm done. I'm done with a country that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, will be my citizenship.
I remember the wisdom of the insurance salesman in 1974, when I bought my first policy. "Take away all the money from everyone and redistribute equally to everyone, and in a short time, those that were wealthy before will be wealthy again." Rich people make wise decisions and know how to accumulate wealth. Others just sit and wonder why.
Interesting, but I don't believe that it's real. Too bad neither party wants to decrease the size of the government.
As a matter of fact, a lack of taxes does not stimulate the economy. Studies say that every dollar invested with no taxes produces $1.02. Every dollar invested in food stamps produces $1.72.
The important fact is not who wrote it but the correct message it sends.
From the page:"If you lose your job, it won't be at the hands of the economy; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country, steamrolled the Constitution, and will have changed its landscape forever."
From the page: "To All My Valued Employees,
There have been some rumblings around the office about the future of this company, and more specifically, your job. As you know, the economy has changed for the worse and presents many challenges. However, the good news is this: The economy doesn't pose a threat to your job.
What does threaten your job however, is the changing political landscape in this country. Of course, as your employer, I am forbidden to tell you whom to vote for -- it is against the law to discriminate based on political affiliation, Race, creed, religion, etc."
Breath of fresh air.
If efficiency isn't necessarily a good thing, why don't we start using bulldozers and just use shovels. Think of how many people will get hired to build a road now?!
I think the premise of your argument - that excess profits are hoarded by business owners - is categorically false. Excess profits, or revenue, that results in increased efficiency go back into the company (in the form of R&D for better products that will benefit us all) increased capital (i.e. new copy machine that makes the company even more efficient) etcetera. Sure, the owner pockets money. But this money that he pockets goes back into the economy via new cars, clothes, etcetera just as the paycheck of another employee would.
I think it's fairly obvious:
Increased Efficiency + Additional Rounds of Spening > More Additional Rounds of Spending from jobs
Furthermore, the private sector is INFINITELY more efficient than the public sector. As a result, arguing that the government spending from the taxes would provide more benefit will ultimately fail as well.
I'm printing this letter out and taping it on my office door. Let my employees read this one!!
I'm skeptical of this being a real letter. I have a feeling this will show up on snopes.com as being false in the next couple of days. Accepting these type of sites and email forwards as fact is how misinformation becomes assumed fact.
