re: Why is "taking less profit" never on the table? - Antonio Moss
[quote] I'll made a trade: We can reduce taxes across the board for those who make less than $400,000 per year IF we'll increase taxes for those above that level and make it a very progressive tax system where the highest rate would be 90%.[/quote] Instead, what if we created a policy that had...

[quote]Also, dare I say, the comments in this thread reek of, um, real downhome Christian values. Business and Jesus don't mix ... OK, fine, I'll buy that. But then please don't go to church/mass/fellowship to feel good about yourself when you're plainly not following your avowed Lord and Savior's t...

re: Who is responsible for the Calif drought? - Antonio Moss
[quote]It's our problem because we eat the food. This isn't hard to understand, really.[/quote] True. But food can come from other sources so that shifts the burden back to Cali. The problem is overpopulating and overirrigating a geographic region which is basically desert. But if we talk a...

[quote]The market dictates wages. If people were unwilling to work for minimum wage flipping burgers, well FAST food restaurants would have to respond by raising wages. [/quote] This. You are paid based on your replaceability. It's why Lebron makes millions and the guy pick up carts at Wal-M...

[quote]Flip your own whopper then I guess.[/quote] Wouldn't have to. You could get rid of every burger-flipper in America today if they unionized and have replacements hired, trained, and on the line by Monday. They have no marketable skills. Several posters have been trying to point this ...

re: Why is "taking less profit" never on the table? - Antonio Moss
Businesses take less profit all the time. So I'm not really sure what point you think you're making here. Businesses take less profit when the reinvest in expansion of production, updating technology, new hires, re-stratification, etc. But would you are advocating is that a business "take les...

[quote]Let's look at "the market." The standard rule of thumb is, folks will earn what the market will bear, or pay. The anti-increase min wage crowd in essence is saying, the market won't bear $15/hr. fastfood workers. But the market WOULD bear it if Sam Walton, or the Kroc's, accepted less profit....
