It's not the first time I see physics researchers criticise others fields for not being as strict as theirs. They usually have a tendency to oversimplify the other fields without taking in consideration practical factors such as the impossibility to obtain large samples or repeat an experiment many times in the exact same conditions.
Are you really having this argument ? It is obvious that we won't build a rail track on every road but at the same time denying that taxes will shitft some cargo towards trains and create new rail tracks does not make any sense !
Tax system with tax bands are always a headaches and encourage people to "optimise" their taxes.

This is because you associate capitalism with evil: in many cases debt can be a useful tool. For a rich entrepreneur it can allow to diversify his exposure to a single business without realising the capital gain tax for example. For people with good ideas, it allow to allocate the capital to something with a higher return on investment. This is why finance is actually useful, it allows some allocation of money more efficiently than if you tried to do it with a single entity which becomes invariable corrupt. The post above my previous reply is totally oblivious to the fact that many of the recent changes in the last centuries are probably more due to modern economy and liberalism allowing the economy to flourish and scientific progress to be made.

But don't you think that if a company was under asset value and has liquid assets it could be bought and sold off asset by asset ?
Sure you do
... You must have done very well !!!
There seems to be evidence that over the long term stocks oscillate around or above the company value they represent, so it is not totally stupid although a bit baffling that people buy a company which will not lay dividends and without the ability to influence any voting decisions.
