re: USA is the only developed country without mandated vacation for employees - Beerinthepocket
If I wasn't satisfied by the amount of PTO I earn with my current employer I would shop around for another job. As I get 25 PTO days a year not many companies can beat that so my company retains their employee. That's how it should work, forcing employers to give a certain amount of PTO is ridiculou...

re: Rubio’s Call for No Capital Gains Tax Is a Significant Break With the G.O.P. - Beerinthepocket

re: Rubio’s Call for No Capital Gains Tax Is a Significant Break With the G.O.P. - Beerinthepocket
I'll spell it out simply. Taxes discourage behavior. Capital gains taxes discourage investment. Reduced capital gains taxes increases investment. Increased investment creates jobs. How are more jobs bad for poor people? Increased investment also increases tax revenues from sources other th...

re: Rubio’s Call for No Capital Gains Tax Is a Significant Break With the G.O.P. - Beerinthepocket
This thread reaffirms my belief that finance, accounting, and economics should be required classes in the senior year of high school. “All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much...

SoFi - anyone used this for a mortgage - Beerinthepocket
I read an article in the Economist the other day that was discussing SoFi, a non-traditional lender backed by private equity that specializes in loans to "HENRY" borrowers aka High Earner, Not Rich Yet. It looks like they determine this by looking at your undergrad degree, graduate degree, curre...

re: 3 year old dead after gun goes off under grandmothers pillow - Beerinthepocket

re: Elon Musk:: Tesla cars to be fully autonomous by 2018 - Beerinthepocket
They will install a charger at your house and their supercharger network is expanding rapidly so I don't see infrastructure being an issue by the time the model 3 is released, even in Louisiana.

re: Why is affirmative action considered a bad policy - Beerinthepocket
Affirmative action is inherently racist through its low expectations for certain minorities. Additionally, It often sets the individuals "helped" up for failure. If a student who would have otherwise gone to LSU and been in the top 10% academically, but due to affirmative action gets into Harvar...
