HeadLever: SuperT: Taxes have zero influence on hiring.

As anything, hiring employees is typically a cost/benifit analysis. Tax rates can impact both the cost of hiring an employee and the benifit that an employee may have on the bottom line.


Actually, no. The cost of hiring is tax deductible to the business (huzzah wage deduction) and you wouldn't have hired the person if they weren't adding to your bottom line. Also, anyone that has the choice of making more or less money and chooses less because of taxes is an idiot that doesn't understand how graduated rates work.

Taxes have zero influence on hiring. ability to meet demand is pretty much the sole driver of hiring. No one ever didn't hire because of taxes. its because their production was being met by current staffing.

That's not the Soggy Bottom Boys, it's Dr. Ralph Stanley, you cretin. That's like mistaking Spinal Tap for Led Zepplin. In the bluegrass community, Ralph Stanley is like Elvis and the Beatles combined. It's a thin audience, but it's a mile deep.

Also because taxes are levied on profits, not total revenue. And because there are no marginal rates above 100%.

You mean like the lower taxes for small businesses the Democratic President has pushed through over the last four years?

Does hiring an extra employee bring in more revenue than the cost of hiring the employee? If yes, hire the guy. If no, don't hire the guy. The tax is levied on the net profit, after accounting for expenses, such as a new employee. It's possible that the net is negative (expense > income), even after hiring, and was even more negative before hiring. In that case, a higher tax rate is meaningless since there's no profit.

Eric Cantor, the chief negotiator on the debt issue, is invested in a fund called ProShares Trust Ultrashort 20+ Year Treasury EFT. This fund specializes in shorting Treasury securities. Cantor is still invested in it and will make a killing if default happens.

Cantor who downgraded US debt to his own benefit. That Cantor?
