Does the mafia still control 80% of those "small businesses" like they used to? My brother in law used to work for a used car dealership until he realized how corrupt and controlled most of them were.

If the fines purpose is to be a deterent, then the fine must be sufficient to result in a deterent effect.
If the fine is meant to compensate the public for the harm caused, then the fine should be adequate to cover the cost of the harm relative to frequency of individuals being caught.
If the fine is meant to cover the costs of enforcement, then the distribution of the fine makes sense to have it be on ability to pay.
Is there a reason this was not released sooner? It seems like a lot of drama could have been reduced if this was released to the public much earlier.
The highest reasonable price would be that of a cheap community college. The price of an Ivy League is due to the value of the networking (both your peers, instructors and alumni).
You've confused statutory with effective rate.
The US has one of the lowest effective rates (how much the corporation actually pays after deductions, etc.), but one of the highest statutory rates (the worst theoretical possible rate that a corporation would pay if it had zero deductions and enormous profits).
My theory is that these are inducements to keep the 'double irish' and 'dutch sandwich' tax dodges available. It seems highly unlikely that Ireland and Netherlands, the two countries that have Allowed apple to avoid hundreds of billions in taxes, and which have suggested that they might change these tax practices, have suddenly become recipients of major investments.
One, the 3,500-year-old Senator Tree in Florida, was burnt to the ground by some kids doing meth inside the hollow of the tree, despite it being fenced off and inside a park.

We're way ahead here, I can blow through my cap in about 45 seconds!
That's what she said?
When I was young, I was very, very poor. Computers were not common. As I hit 5th~ grade or so, they started being quite common, and some teachers started giving bonus points or other advantages to people using computers.
Consumption taxes are relatively easy to evade.
Also the benefit from public tax expenditures isn't proportional to consumption, it is proportional to net worth.
Bill Gates benefits enormously from public education and public funding of universities. He benefits enormously from international trade negotiations and the military keeping international trade relations stable.
Yeah, I think what he said was, "One mouse button ought to be enough for anybody,"
*Bob, tied to the sailboat* "I'm a sailor! I sail!"
The creativity involved from my limited exposure seems close to nonexistant.
I don't really see any benefit from it, compared to any other game. Are parents just deluding themselves? Or is there some substantial creative benefit that I'm not seeing?
It doesn't cost anywhere close to that to bring a new drug to market try more like 43 million, but actually a lot less.
Unless the store employee is equally oblivious and just leads them to the tablet section (perhaps to a rack of android tablets).
