Then you move out of such businesses? Or only tax humans?
They could just tax net worth/capital instead. Not capital gains, capital.
That's why you have more than one of those. And outsource to the telecom company.
(I haven't migrated to the US, but I am working outside India.)
What drives someone in India to come to the US, rather than improving their situation at home?
Money. Indian salaries are still very low as compared to US salaries, especially in Silicon Valley. Improving your situation at home means that you do the same job for a third of the money (at best), or less (usually about a 5th to a 10th).
Keep in mind that the wage gap in India is huge, unlike the US. This means that someone with 15 to 20 years of experience will have a roughly comparable salary, but for a fresher, the salary gap is 10x or more. (Rule of thumb, a job change gets you a 30% salary increase, you change jobs every two or three years. Not true for everyone, but often the case).
A few years ago, it was possible to move to the US for three years, live cheap, return to India and buy an apartment cash down. That's not possible now, it takes 6 years. If you are living in India, you might save up enough for the down-payment in 15 or 20 years, if you give up on most fun parts of life.
A hardware technician. You don't need that many of those.
Or you virtualise as much as possible, and then you need even fewer hands on site.
Isn't that just income tax though? There are other taxes, and CEOs aren't always paid in cash terms.
So a historically poor and oppressed group of people shows more violence than their richer counterparts?
Also Arunachal Pradesh.
Yay! Another Freefall fan!
Pollution is tied to quality of life, which is tied to energy consumption per capita.
GDP is really not a relevant measure, except in terms of being able to purchase that energy.
s/sales/capital gains/, defined as net worth now - net worth at the same time last year.
That drives the taxes to the people who can afford to pay them.
Yeah. Which is why I would rather the western world get some culture
