Germany never invaded Switzerland. The Swiss collaborated with the Nazis and did their banking for them. I loath the Swiss, they're farking scumbags.

"Entrepreneurial families are highly alarmed."

LOL, yeah, those rugged entrepreneurs who are probably many generations from the actual entrepreneurs in their family.

Lefties love inheritence taxes, but high inheritence taxes tend to force the hand of the younger generation to sell to large conglomerates... which lefties also hate.

I should say not.  Germany didn't invade Switzerland.

Even your phone knew your joke was lame, Mr. Powers.

One way to fix that is to delay collecting the inheritance tax until the heirs decide to sell the business.  The heirs can then keep running the business without needing to come up with a big wad of cash.

Are you seriously suggesting that younger generations are similarly interested in running the corporation?  Sometimes you get the next generation to do it, but how many times the third?  And why would they be any better than some psychopathic CEO?

Maybe Bill Ford has a better long term commitment to Ford than nearly any non-founding Chairman, but that is pretty rare.  And if management competence was somehow inherited, we'd be better off sticking to monarchy.  Instead we often see things like this:

Alfred the Great, one of the best kings in England (technically king of Wessex)
his son, Edward the Elder.  Able to maintain Alfred's gains and keep England chugging against the Viking threat
EtE's son, Edmund I (apparently ok, but his brothers occupied the throne far longer than he did)
E1's son, Edgar the Peaceful (must have been both a badass and smart enough not to provoke the Vikings in that era)
And then we get to Edgar's son, Aethred the Unready.  And AtU's son, Edwin the Confessor.  Either one of which could be considered "Worst King of England of all time".

Although 4 good generations is absolutely amazing.  The Romans had their legendary "four good emperors" all of which were adopted and groom for the role.  Then one had an heir, who of course went on to become one of the worst Roman emperors of all time.  Sounds like someone's trying to justify the conservative "privileged by birth" is a right.

So, before WWII a German officer was talking to a Swiss officer, and said, "It's cute that all your citizens train with their rifles, but what happens when an army four times your size invades you?"

The Swiss officer shrugged and said, "Well, then every citizen will shoot four times."
