Thoughts on Inflation

It is amazing how openly our government exploits our people for the benefit of mega-companies. The repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, and the extension of so-called Intellectual Property Laws that enable corporations (which have no intellect) to impose a perpetual tax on the people by overpricing products long after the producers have recovered the cost and a decent profit for developing those products, are but two examples of the victimization of the American people for the benefit of corporate giants.

Thoughts on Government

There are, in my view, three fundamental flaws in our government: the way we maintain our laws, the way we tax, and the way we select our representatives. Until we improve the way we select our representatives, we cannot sunset bad laws or improve our tax code.

Thoughts on Corporate Operations

Corporations are entities formed to exploit the physical and human resources of a community. They provide a means of attracting large amounts of capital to finance large projects. Some are beneficial and some are a detriment to the society that hosts them, but it is not easy to tell which is which because of the myths surrounding their operations.

Introduction to Tax Reform

It is obvious to anyone that our current social and economic system is broken. Our tax system is a core element of the social and economic system. Tax reform is an important topic being debated by reformers across the globe. It is also a very complex and far reaching topic which cannot be summarized in a single blog post, much less a single tweet. A whole book, if not more than one, would be necessary to properly discuss each reform proposals, their effectiveness, their feasibility and their implications.
