Taxes can be proportional, regressive or progressive in nature. This means that different taxes place different burdens on the rich and the poor. A proportional tax is on in which the proportion of income paid in tax is constant at all income levels. A low-income household pays the same percentage in tax as a higher-income household. The rich will pay more than the poor in absolute terms, but the burden of the tax will be no greater on the rich than it is on the poor.
It also ensures that he can put a high quality product on the market at a relatively low price. On the contrary, when the government requires that workers be paid more, businesses are forced to make adjustments in other areas to offset the added costs, such as reducing work hours, cutting benefits, hiring fewer people and charging higher prices. Naive lawmakers tend to believe, or at
The problem with power is that "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely". So whoever has the power to control will not be willing to give it up. Preservation of power becomes the game and human life counts for nothing. In a society where one unwilling beggar roams the streets, the biggest psychological fear of the rich and powerful is to become a beggar one day. So that person will do everything in their power to accumulate more wealth to ensure that poverty will never happen to them.
He is very critical of those who hoarded their surplus riches while living and only wait until their death to allow their amassed fortune to be used for public goods. Ultimately, it is his belief that the wealthy have a responsibility of utmost importance to society in making sure that the community also get the benefits of a continuously improving society. It is their responsibility, for they are the best equipped and have the means to do so. This stems from Carnegie’s acknowledgment of a justified inequality because of social Darwinism. That’s
Conclusion: Poverty Does Not Fosters Crime Many people believe that poverty is the main cause of crimes in a city or country. They believe that the only thing poor people do is steal, mug, or even assassin to get things instead of working like a normal people do. For example, I have seen very rich people claiming that poor people are a problem to society because they do not give anything good to it; how poor people are thrown away from certain places only because they “scare normal people”, now society excludes them because of fear. We have become so judgmental that when we see a black guy or some other man with not so good clothes or with a not so good appearance (or in any way that poor people look) walking down the street coming right at us, we immediately though that he is going to assault us and maybe kill us; but if we see a man in a business suit, well shaved, with a clean hair cut, and a nice smile we might think it is even a friends of ours that is coming to say hi. There is something society should know, the rate of crimes is increasing in wealthy countries; the man in the suit could have done a scam or he might me a hit man.
If a fund has 100 percent turnover rate that means the fund manager, in theory has sold every single stock position once. Portfolio turnover is an important component to assess the management style of a fund. Each trade (buy/sell) costs brokerage commissions, even though mutual funds pay lower commissions than individual investors, it was observed that brokerage costs can account for 0.5% to 2% assets managed; smaller funds with high rates of portfolio turnover have higher costs. For tax purposes, brokerage commissions are considered as “capital costs” as they are considered part of the cost of the securities purchased and hence are not part of the Management Expenses Ratio. Trading expenses, which include brokerage
Third, he says,“The best thing a man can do for his culture when he is rich is to endeavor to carry out those schemes which he entertained when he was poor.” That wouldn’t be the finest thing to do if he did things wrong in the past, it would be better to continue working hard to preserve their wealth. They get money because of what they’re doing in the present, not by sustaining schemes from the past. Henry David
Computed by deducting the cost of capital from the after-tax profit, it is said to be the best measure of the true profitability of an enterprise because it is tied to cash flow and not earnings per share. Many analysts would agree that EVA is more positively associated with a company’s stock price than ROE or EPS. Keith confirmed his findings with an industry analyst, which posed him with the decision of whether of not to implement this calculation into OSI accounting practices. Furthermore, would it be a beneficial tool to be used for evaluating the new manager’s incentive compensation plans? The EVA trend seems to be almost mandatory for the larger companies, but there is no reason that it shouldn’t work just as well for their smaller firm.
Arundhati Roy’s text “Excerpts from War Talk” and “Why the Rich are Getting Richer and the Poor Poorer” by Robert Reich are two texts explaining the major reasons of why in todays society rich people get richer while poor become poorer. Unfortunately, the society is very unfair. There is a system in place that is controlled by a handful of extremely wealthy people, who often were luckily born into the right families and never worked their way to the top. These people in power positions have the game rigged to continue to benefit them and to protect their heritage. Your future wealth is no longer depending on how hard you work; there are hardworking intelligent people and hard working less intelligent people in all groups of society.
The main purpose of a corporation is to make a profit and increase shareholder value. Shareholders only own a part of the company through stock ownership. Friedman believed that the corporate executive is a person in his own right and his responsibilities are personal and of the individual. By voluntarily doing so, he is using his own money, time, and energy rather than the company’s. Friedman uses the example of stopping the increase of the price of the product to prevent inflation, but this would be
