Greg Leiserson did not extend his analysis which would show that raising income tax rates both corporate and business would provide financial incentives for owners for profits to be reinvested into capital improvements and increases in the number of employees rather than take the tax hit on the profits. The GOP has it backwards, tax cuts provide no incentive for businesses to invest while increased income taxes do provide it by utilizing the natural tendency of businessmen to avoid taxes and giving money to government. Economic history bears this out.

Speaking of Cowboy Junkies, Tim Worstall on Forbes writes he is only following you in claiming that Social Security should start at a much higher age, the average age at death of around 80. He does not link to your argument. The only thing I have found you wrote in a quick search is that the Social Security should be bigger and have higher benefits. He often has fantastical arguments supporting policies that benefit the billionaire class but is he making this up entirely?

That was so remote from reality as to what really happened I wonder if Neil still thinks Romney is going to take office. Geithner just presented the same proposal that Obama offered days ago and that Obama won an election on. The angry old white guys lost and unless the GOP presents a credible proposal all taxes will go up Jan 1 along with substantial budget cuts.The GOP better start negotiating now instead of begging Obama for any tax cuts next year. So far they have not offered any concrete proposals. I wonder if not reading any media outside their bubble they realize how screwed they are?

So an error on every page or so. They went too far from what they knew and listened to the wrong people. I hope the headline is not correct.
