You could always just admit that you didn't realize that some people were born rich, and never earned a paycheck.

 

It's Not Yours.

 

It was earned, by Adults, and then Taxed, and then saved and Invested.

 

...and it's still not yours.

 

Adolescent Socialist malcontent.

Growth and expansion,

by definition,

are speculation.

a.k.a. gambling

To some degree...but indepth research into solid companies can make it less risky.

 

Technically there are no risk free investments in or out of the stock market.

For whom do you give this advice to increase the capital gains tax? For the state? It already has a huge tax! For example, when I was officially working, I paid about 50% of my earnings on taxes! But then decided not to pay taxes, and to do that I needed to come up with something to do that does not require the payment of taxes. So I decided to start trading on Binance. Firstly I spent a lot (about 40% of all money was lost) but then I found these guys ( click here to know more)  whom I paid 30 dollars and they provided me with software that gives me signals of the cryptocurrency market. Now I understand very well what I have to do with each signal, so I earn very well, and besides I don't pay taxes, because I don't need to pay tax for the cryptocurrency.

There you go! Simple and to the point. Something I've always believed.

No. 

 

Private investment is essential to the economy. 

 

2. It’s already been taxed when earned.

I don't get why the government has no desire to accept cryptocurrency as one of the financial means. I think it's kinda topical today and its popularity is growing every day. A lot of new platfroms are created every day, and some of them are quite demanded among the users. For example, instaforex review platform is one of the most comfortable for beginner users and advances ones. It provides different services from cryptocurrency mining, indexing to its exchanging and trading.

I like Steve Rattner and am confident he knows more than me about this, but I strongly support

raising the Inheritance/Estate Tax to a HUGE percentage and reducing or eliminating all the Trusts.

Eager to begin, quick to finish as they say. The good train of thoughts went off the rails at the word Binance. When these words come up in a discussion I immediately think of the Bitconect or Forex or Casino, or whatever emptiers of naive population's pockets. 
If you work from home as a developer, designer, copywriter, or something like this, ask to get paid in BTC. That's it- you evaded the tax. Then just get your money from an exchanger with good high limits terms like BTCBIT.net

Does it matter to liberals that increasing capital gains taxes, actually reduces revenue to the government?

Obama admitted this, and said it didn't matter because it was meant to punish the wealthy.
How stupid do you need be, to cut off your nose, to spite your face?

 

Charlie Gibson and Obama in debate with Hitlery Clinton

 

GIBSON: All right. You have, however, said you would favor an increase in the capital gains tax. As a matter of fact, you said on CNBC, and I quote, “I certainly would not go above what existed under Bill Clinton,” which was 28 percent. It’s now 15 percent. That’s almost a doubling, if you went to 28 percent.

But actually, Bill Clinton, in 1997, signed legislation that dropped the capital gains tax to 20 percent.

OBAMA: Right.

GIBSON: And George Bush has taken it down to 15 percent.

OBAMA: Right.

GIBSON: And in each instance, when the rate dropped, revenues from the tax increased; the government took in more money. And in the 1980s, when the tax was increased to 28 percent, the revenues went down.

So why raise it at all, especially given the fact that 100 million people in this country own stock and would be affected?

OBAMA: Well, Charlie, what I’ve said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness.

 

Proving again that Obama was a dumbass, and an economic idiot.
