jack_o_the_hills: People fail to realize there are plenty of other people who will gladly scoop up that 25% or 55% of a short metric shiateload of money if the diamond dusted vaginas leave because they cant get it all.


Exactly, in that FARKING RETARDED BOOK BY RAND she assumed the Galt's of the world would up and leave and we would all stand around holding our collective dicks wondering what we could possibly do.

Fark that noise.

Anyone think they can do their bosses job better than their boss? They will step up and do their bosses jobs, better than their boss.

People out there whose ideas can't get going because of a de facto monopoly run by the GAltians? Blammo, here's your chance, they went Galt, no one is minding the store and the level of collusion will be at all time lows...

By the time Galtians realized the world would indeed continue to spin with them and blessed us with their presence again, they would have to reapply for their former positions, and unfortunately, there wouldn't be any openings at this time. But thaaaanks.

Whenever I see 'Going Galt' I know I am dealing with an absolute farking idiot.

this x 100000 . People fail to realize there are plenty of other people who will gladly scoop up that 25% or 55% of a short metric shiateload of money if the diamond dusted vaginas leave because they cant get it all. I openly scoff at the idea of "talent without replacement" . Liars, bullshiatters and con artists are in abundance.

I have to explain to people almost weekly where I work that something >0 is in fact >0 ..

Going Galt isn't about individuals doing it. It's about the talent pool as a whole. What do you think will happen to France's ability to have a working economy when the top tier of the talent go elsewhere? The next best will still be good but not as good. It's an erosion of the talent pool that will be the result of going Galt.

The talent won't go away. It will just go somewhere else. Why do you think there are so few people capable of making buggy whips? The skill to make them is there but it's used elsewhere. When the people with the guns aka government decide to make things difficult if not downright impossible to do X, the people will either do Y or go do X elsewhere. If X just happens to be a major part of your economy, whoops. You're up shiat creek and the guy making the paddles isn't making them anymore.

It does give us a "lab" where we can see what happens before we try anything similar.

Me , If I was rich and faced taxes like that I'd move.

Smeggy Smurf: Let's see how their economy goes when the rich go Galt.


You do realize we're talking about France here. There are only 15 billionaires in the whole country. The richest man in France is Bernard Arnault. He owns Louis Vuiton Moet Hennessy. Do you realize the marketing nightmare he faces if he's not French? Or how much defense business the Dassault family would lose if they leave? This may be the dumbest comment ever.
