I am assuming that it is obvious that since labor and capital, human, physical and otherwise, are the source of income, ultimately government revenues will have to come from those sources. I AM assuming that it is going to be harder and harder to get income from pure labor and the burden will be distributed on human and financial capital in some way. Given the current distribution of taxes, property taxes and luxury taxes are certainly ways to reallocate taxes toward...
I guess you are right, though we seem to always underestimate the progress of the DPRK nuclear program. Also, don't they have a bunch of SCUD style missles. Even with conventional high explosives, that could do a lot of damage.First, I doubt you could find any significant number of Germans who regret reunification.

The potential returns to industrializing 15 million extra Korean workers could be the investment opportunity of a lifetime. Given that global capital markets are awash in low interest rate funds, South...
He literally told the judge he wants to make a run for it.
If true, he got what he deserved.
Seems significant that their best 5 (3 +Allen&Battier) are destroying everybody and they are cruising to an 800 record w/o riding those horses into the ground. That lineup will see a lot more minutes in playoffs.
Is SendGrid some sort of spam company? Their website says they specialize in "email deliverability".
