If you work for a mid sized company that's owned by someone who dies, it gets passed down to someone. But if that someone doesn't have enough money to pay the estate tax, they have to sell some or all the business. If you're an employee of that business, that should worry you. New ownership can be quite stressful, especially if they decide to bring in some new H1B curryniggers for you to train. If the new owner is the son/daughter, it's far more likely that things will remain stable.

ah, you're a small thinker.

I was talking about government contracts where a single individual can easily make millions.

they overwhelmingly go to rich white males.

so the gov taking a shit on rich white males is just as fair as them giving them money to shit on in the first place.

keep thinking small though, silly little racist.

God damn you are fucking retarded, and you are more racist than anybody else here. Is every white male a rich person? Besides, aren't jews, indians and asians proportionally more wealthy than white people? Whites are not even the wealthiest racial/ethnical group, there are millions of white guys working shit jobs and living in caravans. You black activists are fucking blind by your hate and inferiority complex.

mid sized company

Keyword there. Most large companies are broken up among the children and grandchildren of its founders plus the public and are already held in sizeable trusts. If your company owner is smart then they have already rolled a lot of stock into trusts, if not then sure thing people can get screwed if the company is bought up by others.

If the new owner is the son/daughter

In my experience these are the people who fuck up the company in the name of the bottom line as often as anyone else.

nope, but the government isn't shitting on every white person with estate taxes, are they?

aren't jews, indians and asians proportionally more wealthy than white people?
I don't know but it's irrelevant to the fact that there's less of them so the government gives fewer contracts to them and charges them estate taxes less often.

You black activists
you're a moron.

all I said is the government gives more money to certain people so it's just as fair that they take more from those same people. The fact that those people are white men doesn't change the fairness or unfairness of the thing. It could be Amazonian women for all I care, I'm just saying if it's unfair to shit on one group more than others you should also be bitching about one group benefiting more than others.

not necessarily.

there's a lot of rich socialist-leaning people just because of the cognitive dissonance that hypocrisy creates. But then voting against your own interests creates its own dissonance as well. So you see these socially conscious corporations popping up that try to ease their conscience for all their success by 'helping' the environment and 'giving' to poor people.

as if they can give more than they take. The best they can be is a vehicle for giving other people's money.

Your argument fails, because they're not the same people.
Contracts aren't awarded to every person exposed to the estate tax.
All you're doing is claiming it's ok to fuck some rich people, simply because there's some overlap with the rich people awarded said contracts.

no, the overlap is irrelevant to my argument.

is it ok for the government to arbitrarily take a dump on some people and not others?

if you say no then you'd need to also complain about them arbitrarily enriching some people and not others.

the fact that they're mostly the same people is irrelevant to the argument, though not coincidental.

Personally I don't think either one is wrong, but then I'm a wealthy white male that made a portion of his money selling to the government and I don't really care what they take in taxes because I can and will make more.

in reality profit for one doesn't necessarily require loss from another. Because money isn't real and the government prints more of it every day.

Lots of wealthy people in 1st world countries, but even our poor are wealthy compared to those of other places. Because the rich getting richer does actually help the poor.

Y'know what'd help the poor even more than that? Making the poor richer. That's what's so great about this type of legislation; you find some sum of money that most citizens will never see, then tax the shit out of anything above it, and give it to the poor people. That way, you still have the same number of rich people (they're just less rich), and fewer poor people.

Yes, you're taking huge amounts of cash that is currently locked up in investments and placing it in circulation.

the predictable effect is going to be massive inflation, not poor people actually getting more goods or services.

and to keep right on badgering you, how long do you think that money will stay in poor people's pockets anyways? Capitalism favors those that understand it, the rich will just get rich again. The poor will go right back to being poor.

Soft_member

@Sir_Gallonhead
Yeah, the mechanics of wrestling money from the rich and giving it to the poor without destroying the market or letting them all OD on crack is some rough shit. We could spitball policy proposals on this, but the quick/easy/vague answer is an aggressively progressive tax system (to keep money from flowing up again) and reallocating money via indirect stimulus and infrastructural investment (hopefully without a voracious bureaucracy and a glut of useless ditch-diggers).

cum2soon

@Soft_member
I agree on all points.

though at the moment about half of Americans pay 0 income taxes and a significant majority of those actually get money back they didn't pay in.

essentially being paid just to exist.

I don't really mind raising taxes on the wealthy, personally I think the disparity is too big and could use adjusting. I just suspect poor people might do better if we gave them goods and services rather than cash. I don't know how to fix the problems that made them poor in the first place. Better education maybe.

Yes, Britain wasn't totally annihilated like Germany was but the war was devastating to them. To describe the country as "in ruins" would be entirely accurate. America's dominance of the world from 1945 well into the 80s was simply because there was nothing else built up enough to challenge it. The USSR was never actually a super power economically. It was a nuclear threat and a big economic fish in a the small economic pond of eastern Europe and Asia.

Centers of power were everywhere, a few, and I do mean a few, the figures of casualties and the cost of rebuilding for other countries was much, much larger, bombs thrown at London did nothing to break the power of the British. To assume that is assnine and makes me assume that basic history is way over your head. Now ask yourself the actual reason why the US surpassed Britain as the world power. It's because FDR told Britain that in order to get American help, it would have to release its colonies, thereby cutting British power, and making the loss that much more devastating.

Passing on an entire company is tough to do but the solution is incorporating early and selling off enough stock so that your ownership can be a moderate size.

You can give 14k a year away once a year to any amount of people tax free with that new cash from the stock sale.

And if thats not enough money for your kids then fuck em.

Im a CPA and I have no sympathy for the kids of my clients. You can afford them huge opputunities while youre alive with your cash. If they cant survive off the 5 mil and other tax estate planning strategies, then you as a parent fucked up raising them.

If it was up to me. I would raise the estate tax to 99%. Taxing the absurdly rich dead is the easiest solution to finding tax money.

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

@Crazy_Nice
Nobody is saying that. But deciding to tax a dead absurdly rich man for who is only passing on 5 mil to his kids can help the poor by covering the taxes they would have had to pay up to 50k lets say.

Nobody can deny the wealth is becoming too concentrated in certain generational families.

You can give your kids the best schooling, buy them jobs while youre alive.

It should be 99% estate tax after the limit and we can nip this oligarchy in the butt now.

this is only going to hurt the middle class and create a larger barrier to entry for them to obtain incentive to invest
