    First of all. The tax doesn't actually force you to sell anything necessarily. It does incentivize increasing your personal income, that income can easily come from dividends or earnings. Furthermore even if you are forced to sell some of your stake to pay your taxes that doesn't in effect do anything negative to a company. Let's say Amazon, Amazon's success has fuck all to do with whether Jeff Bezos holds 200b in stocks or 189b in stocks. That 11b didn't vanish from the market capitalization of the company. It just went on the market. Hell, Bezos might even effectively offset that if the dividends and earnings from his stocks were higher than whatever he had to pay in taxes.

    Having a higher tax on stocks would actually incentivize higher earnings on stocks. Because currently it's more preferable to have low earnings and high stock value.



    We can have a conversation about whether 6% is too high or too low, but we first need to agree that there needs to be a tax on wealth held in stocks. There's no point in discussing percentages until we actually agree on taxing stocks.



    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNNINNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGSSSSSSSSSSS SSSSSSSS.

    Earnings.

    Earnings.



    Actually....I think that's a pretty decent idea. Local taxes should probably be limited to way fewer things, like....a sales tax or things like a sugar tax and such. Or eliminated altogether. Like, the simple fact that school districts are funded locally has contributed massively to our dysfunctional public education system. Instead taxes should be collected federally and then redistributed using a system where part of the redistribution is allocated based on need. This would allow us to for example FIX OUR FUCKING INFRASTRUCTURE and to FIX SHITTY SCHOOL DISTRICTS and do other things like DEAL WITH FUCKING HOMELESSNESS.

    Just because we are doing something one way right now, it doesn't mean we are doing it right.



    One more mother fucking time. The fundamental problem is that an economic infrastructure was created where stocks are never sold, because once you are above wealth threshold you no longer neeeeeeeeeeeeed to sell anything to access effectively infinite tax free liquidity. That's the problem we are trying to address.



    Yes. We should. Just as we do, with other things........LIKE REAL ESTATE.
    The stock is already being taxed... when it's sold.

    It's quite literally forcing people to sell the companies they founded.

    The fact that you don't realize that it forces you to sell, is the problem. It means you have no clue about liquidity, or you simply don't give a shit where they come up with the funds to pay that tax. If Bezos literally sold all his other assets, he'd still have less than two years, before he'd be forced to sell his company stock.

    That's a simple fact of reality that Warren and her sycophants just don't realize (or that's exactly what they want).

    That's why it's a tax dodge for millionaires and billionaires only.

    What company is that?



    He doesn't "own" Amazon, dude. And as his wealth decreases so does the tax on the wealth.



    Again, what company? He doesn't own Amazon, just shares in Amazon, so which company is he being forced to sell?
    Very well:

    Jeff Bezos is worth roughly $190 billion. It fluctuates a lot, daily... because it's tied to his Amazon stock.

    https://www.investopedia.com/article...ople-world.asp

    https://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/...ing-tesla-musk

    He owns 51.7 million shares of stock, valued at $3,345.

    https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/AMZN?p=AMZN

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/je...f%20the%20week.

    So, multiple 51.7 million, times the value, and you get $172.9 million tied up in Amazon stock. That is 90% of his total net worth (about 90.4). That means the other 9.6% is other investments, as well as his liquid assets, and his other assets (homes, plane, couches, comic book collections).

    So, if the goal is to tax that at 6%, which Warren's goal does state:

    https://elizabethwarren.com/plans/ultra-millionaire-tax

    That puts it t 6% of 191 million, or $11.4 million, just in the first year. S0, of the $18.1 billion that isn't Amazon, $11.4 billion of that would have to be used to pay that tax alone.

    Now, let's move forward a year (this works, regardless of whether his worth goes up or down). He now has $6.7 billion in non-Amazon assets, but his tax burden is still going to be about $11.4 billion. Now, that burden could be much, much more, or it could even be a bit less, if Amazon were to drop a bit. But, let's say that his company grew by exactly 6%, he'd have to come up with $11.4 billion.

    Since he only has $6.7 billion in non-amazon assets, he is then forced to sell his Amazon stock... after only two years. Meanwhile, he's 57, which means he has 30 years to live. Feel free to extrapolate from there. But, after a mere two years, he's already forced to sell stock in the very company he founded.

    Again, Jeff Bezos does not "own" Amazon, he has 11% of shares - https://www.investopedia.com/article...lders-amzn.asp

    He can't sell "his" company if he doesn't own a majority of the shares to make it "his" company.

    Compare that to Zuckerberg who owns about 58% of shares (at least voting shares) and you have a dude who ACTUALY owns the company given his majority ownership of the stock.

    You're acting like needing to sell a few hundred/thousand shares is asking them to go into poverty or lose control of something they never had control over to begin with.

    That he'll have to sell off some shares? No, I don't. Because that's pretty regular/routine shit for anyone come tax season if they owe taxes and don't have the liquid cash to cover it. Will he still own most of his shares? Yes. Will he still be fabulously wealthy? Yes. Will it negatively impact him or his ability to invest in new ventures? No.

    You asked for the math, the math was given. I proved he'd be forced to sell shares after less than two years. That would continue until he died.

    Of course you don't care, because this is all about your hate boner for the wealthy.

    Selling shares, every fucking year... of the company he fucking founded.

    But hey, at least I provided the math as to why all of this is so fucking despicable.

    No, you're continuing to completely ignore that you claim people will have to sell "their company" yet still have yet to show any evidence of this. Selling some stock, especially in a company they didn't found/don't actually own isn't "selling their company".

    This is moving to, "They'll have to sell stock!" which like...yeah, that's the point.

    Who said that? Literally nobody here said that. On the contrary. What I said is that I'd much rather see lower gains on stock values and higher earnings payments to shift some of the capital gains out of the stock market and into the rest of the economy.

    It's not effectively infinite, I want to see your evidence on that.
    It's a figure of speech for fuck sake.

    Yes, it's not technically infinite, but it's "infinite" enough for Bezos to buy a 500m yacht if he wants to without selling a single a share or even really pay anything in interest.

    Don’t believe me? Ask yourself what happens if everyone decided to sell all their stocks today. Do you think they just call up Wall Street and ask to withdraw their money? Firstly there isn’t enough real money in the entire US economy to cover all those stocks. Secondly if everyone is selling, no one is buying and they’re all worth zero dollars.

    Think of the stock market as a massively over leveraged bank. It only works if the vast majority of stocks aren’t being sold. And good luck going to the store to buy a sandwich with a stock certificate.
    Money has no value its just paper. If the US breaks down in a civil war and all states split the us dollar would be worth as much as a cuban peso. Hypothecical examples based in fiction are fun.

    So, you wanted to invoke Zuckerberg.

    He's worth $120 billion, with literally almost all of it in Facebook stock (over 90%). So, the exact same goes for him.

    Now, don't get me wrong, I don't think for one second that you give a shit about forcing this. I think this is exactly what you want. I also think it's fucking evil. I think you'd feel the same way for someone like Lynsi Snyder, who owns her entire company.

    It's not an issue to you, because the results of Warren's asstastic plan are a feature for you, not a sad consequence. Remember, you want to eat the rich, and forcing them to sell their companies (, or if you prefer, the companies they founded and built), is perfectly aligned with your evil plans.

    Great, then you want double taxation, which means you must want the same for all assets.

    Or, are you calling for double standards?

    Imagine having to give the federal government $60k when you sold your house... that would be fucking hilarious.

    You're literally whining that he's got collateral.

    Alright...and? He's already pledged to give away 99% of his stake over his lifetime but we'll ignore that.

    https://www.investopedia.com/article...ople-world.asp

    $3B in cash and another quarter billion in real estate. That's a lot to go through before he even has to consider liquidating some of his stock which he's already planned to liquidate.

    In which you continue to claim people will be forced to sell companies but still have yet to actually show any real evidence that anyone who actually owns their publicly traded company (i.e. 50.01%+ of voting/total stock) would lose control over the company. You moving the goalposts to "founding/build" doesn't change anything, it's just backpedaling.

    I provided you with the fucking links to back up my fucking math.

    Can you refute the fucking math? Please, do so.

    So, let's look at Lynsi Snyder, she's worth $3.6 billion, with HER company amounting to over 80% of that. She is the sole owner of her company. She easily has 40 years of life left. So, would you like to do the math to figure out how long she has, before you want to force her to sell her company?

    Here's a hint, it's about 5-6 years, at best.

    And again, you are throwing out random buzzphrases that have no meaning. I mean, they have no meaning to me specifically, like none whatsoever, but they also have no meaning in general. You haven't read my text, you have not grasped the point of what I am saying. With no syllable are you acknowledging even the tiniest bit of it. All you see is a big block of text and then... I don't know, randomly throw something into the room in the hope that it's close enough to be considered a contribution to the conversation.

    If I talked to an ape, it would be the same result. I'm not saying you're an ape or that you have the intelligence of an ape, that's not what I'm saying at all. But I am saying talking to an ape would have the same net result.
