  • The Real Key

    It’s no wonder that voodoo is no longer being used as a smokescreen. In 2017, when the tax reform package was being hashed out, the Democrats were disparaging the legislation, calling it, “tax cuts for the rich” or “trickled down economics” and of course, “voodoo economics.”

  • The Wealth Tax is Unconstitutional

    Despite what you may have heard, a federal wealth tax would be defeated at the U.S. Supreme Court. Such a tax is a way of taking accumulated wealth from those who have too much as determined by government policy makers.

  • The Obstacle to the Wealth Tax

    Wealth tax advocates will be attacking the Supreme Court’s 1895 Pollock opinion which maintains that a tax on property is a direct tax.

  • The Claim of 'Not Easily Apportioned'

    It was the nation’s first judicial review case; Congress had passed the Carriage Tax bill. The luxury tax would be imposed yearly on all owners of passenger carriages.

  • The Claim of 'Apportionment Wasn’t Meant to Protect Wealth'

  • Equal Transactions

    The previous article, Wealth is Created, leads us perfectly to this post. Some of the ideas in this article are from chapter two of Organic Wealth fittingly entitled, Equal Transactions. I’m not going to give away all the gold here; there’s much more that’s left out of this article. But ple...

  • Unlimited Wealth

    I wrote in my previous article that we can define wealth as the saved monetary value from meeting demand.

  • Effective Supply

    The fourth chapter of Organic Wealth is the longest chapter and could have been expanded to become a book all on its own.

    Effective Supply defines supply side economics and how such policies are essentially giving workers and businesses the freedom to pursue income creation. This type of ...
