Re: Marginal Utility
The problem is not you, Nobel Prize winners and the economics faculty of MIT talking about economics. The problem is then using the principles offered but only in politically convienent ways to justify 50% or greater tax rates on top earners exclusively for the purpose of buying the votes of others. Basically on the promise of larger and more inefficient government programs that seems to be immune from those same economic principles but you'll support anyway knowing full well you need to ensure continued support of those voters you have bought.
