One line of logic I've never been able to follow is this idea that if we tax the rich more, such as big companies, that it will generate a stronger economy or at least help rebuild it. Has anyone who thinks this ever worked a day in their lives? It's clear what happens when big businesses are crunched, they downsize. They obviously want to keep their business the way it is, so they trim weight. They cut lower people or pile on responsibilities to compensate. Maybe my views are just naive but I've seen this at work in my previous company. People these days get some sort of primal satisfaction when they're told or promised by politicians that they're going to tax the wealthy or beat on big business and then POOF! Unemployment is at 10%. What do you think?
