I've thought a lot about that--I used to be a lot more pro-union until recently, and the experience of unionization in the 1930s did give the USA one of its few periods of income compression, but the heavy stimuli of the past few years seem to have caused inflation of a sort I haven't seen in a while, and my own readings of Latin American history seem to show that worker power leads to increased inflation (though lack of it leads to very unpleasant levels of inequality). I'm not really sure what the best choice is. Ultimately it's up to everyone to decide whether they want to keep patronizing Noble Knight.That's always the excuse used to justify not imposing safeguards to prevent the exploitation of workers. It's ultimately a fear-mongering tactic.
Yep, I've read that. I wouldn't oppose getting rid of some of those loopholes, but I don't have the hundred million on hand to buy enough congressmen to do that.Not just European countries. We tax corporate profit too. Eisenhower had some very strong things to say about it back in the 1950s. Our rate is higher than many European countries, but we allow loopholes out the wazoo.
