    Ah yeah, but I don't have the energy to rip into the logic of the thing. It's like when people compare national debt to credit card debt, and public spending to shopping in Waitrose. It's unjustified...

    Of course it makes a difference. "Look what this economics professor says about the tax system" is likely to have more impact than "This is why I think the tax system is bad". Why else would they...

    It's always fun to fraudulently stick someone's name on your flawed logic to make it seem more credible.

    Can we at least be honest about the level of taxation. It's only 40% of any money OVER 325,000. If they take anything like 40% of your estate, you'd have to be leaving an amount that made 325,000...

    I don't think that free trade would work when the tax environments of the two countries are so fundamentally different. Unless you can convince everyone to drop sales and export taxes.

    You're not paying tax twice with inheritance tax. You pay tax on your earnings, and then your offspring pay tax on what they inherit. Why do they deserve to get a large amount of money tax free?
