[quote]With distance from the "flat year" and in the absence of major economic upheaval, we'd expect relatively stable revenue to GDP growth.[/quote] Sure, but we gave something up, that is recurring.

[quote]The answer is nothing has gone up [/quote] oh ok I'd be curious if anyone would support you in asserting this, as stated. I'd also be curious if maybe you'd want to refine your phrasing a bit. I mean, your words could fairly be interpreted as asserting 0.0% inflation since January 2018. ...

[quote]4% growth is 8% better than 3.7% growth. [/quote] i already told you, 3.7 is a comparison of two quarters, it's not cumulative. but tax revenue is. that's why you need to look at the Y/Y growth for every quarter...
