Taxes are at historical lows, especially among those most able to pay (the wealthiest, who have seen their wealth skyrocket while incomes of pretty much everyone else languishes).

Also, inflation is generally responsive to unemployment rates, rather than tax rates.

"the state never has to answer to the market" The parallels between a free market of companies, and a free market of candidates in a liberal democracy, are actually quite strong. When the former contaminates the latter, however (also known as "right wing utopia"), you can have serious problems.

The biggest productivity enhancer is more resolution, because even today fucking NOBODY gets multi-monitor working right. Not nVidia, not AMD, not Microsoft, not Apple, and not Linux.

Last PROPERLY working multi-monitor setup was on SGI hardware.

LOL, nope. Apple had multi-monitor systems in the 80s and they worked just fine.

Uber has its bad points but what it does is empower citizens to do things that will make them some extra money, If you are willing to drive people after work then go ahead, if you want to make a career out of it that is good too.

LMAO. No one will ever make a career out of driving for Uber, even full time. Most cabbies don't make a lot per shift either, and Uber wants to try to be cheaper than a hailed cab? Won't ever happen.

There is also similar sites where you can rent your home. The cities are cracking down on this because it could be considered hotelling.

That's because it is hotelling. A lot of AirBNB seems to be people renting out apartments they don't own in contravention of local health and safety codes. Those codes are there for a reason. The rest are renting out their own condos illegally and in contravention to the terms of the condo corporation they agreed to & signed when they bought the place.

Money is the root of all wealth.
