lol okay. I called that one, didn't I?!

I referred you to the point when I wrote it in the very first line of my first post in this thread. How much more reference do we need?


Sure did, after I asked you three or four times Roll Eyes

We have someone on the forum derailing threads as usual. Just heads up

What you are doing (running around the forum calling people assholes and not reading posts) is the high water mark of what derailing threads looks like.

If you had read the first line of the first post, that would have been three or four times too many.

I told you I did not read the OP. So therefore you derailed the thread. Let it go. Now what was that about tariffs are just like wealth and marginal taxes?  Do yo care to discuss or will you continue to derail the thread to avoid answering. Your choice.

wads can't you just engage in a polite discussion. Read the OP...it's not at all contentious, it's making a point, and throughout the thread providing evidence to support the position.

everything does not have to be a fight, and every discussion does not have to be name calling.

I said I did not read the OP until TL said his statement was in the OP   Stay out of it if you don’t know what you are talking about

I am a people. You're repeatedly insulting me. And you admit to not reading my posts.

The ball is in your court. Read the posts and respond if you wish.

I don't think anyone has said that tariffs are just like wealth taxes.

The point is that tariffs and wealth taxes, along with large busts in the stock market, reduce the value of assets held in private hands and therefore reduce the investment available to fund the demand for labor and other inputs which sustain the supply chain at its current rate of employment.

In other words, while unique among themselves, tariffs and wealth taxes *both* lead to contractions in spending which can become self-reinforcing and result in deflationary disequilibria economy wide. That's code for recession.

Some stimulus program is called for depending on the size and scope of the tax.

Prices are sticky. We're all Keynesians now.

Trump's (comparatively meager) 75 billion annual tax has led to billions in bailouts and promises of billions more, along with a renewed monetary stimulus program.

Now imagine increasing that number by 400%. Now we're talking about a tax in the trillions.
