You know the way they say that you can't see a bubble from inside the bubble.

Bullshiat.

This is a crazy tech bubble.

Apple's PE ratio is around 31.  They have good growth prospects and solid margins to go along with their massive revenues and earnings.  That doesn't seem very bubbly to me.

If you want to argue that TSLA is a bubble, sure, but AAPL is just a giant money machine.

Some, call me.... Tim!

The corporate tax in USA isn't low, its normal. Who you want to tax are private individuals, not companies creating grotwh.

Closing tax loopholes is a good thing, but that is different than lowering the tax.


Remember when the EC declared that the Irish tax granted to Apple was to low, and forced Ireland to collect a normal amount of tax?

I remember, some, Americans whining, like they always do, about the EU, because they don't understand what's going on. Regardless, what the EU told Apple, was that they would drop the case, if they actually just declared their taxes in USA. They didn't want to, since the corporate tax in USA is already not low.

Even worse, those hacks over at Politifact say that's not true. That's why I don't trust them. https://www.politifact.com/fact​checks/​2010/dec/10/bernie-sanders/bernie-sand​ers-filibuster-exxon-mobil/

Thankfully, corporate and income tax revenue has been skyrocketing. Tax revenues have surged by the most in 44 years, due to secret enforcement mechanisms by Biden https://www.politico.com/news/2​021/10/​12/tax-revenue-surge-pandemic-515792

Corporate tax revenues are up 75%. Individual income taxes were up 27.5 percent, CBO estimates. Those too are disproportionately paid by the well-to-do, with 80 percent coming from the top 10 percent of earners.

I'm sure there is. That's why I think the correct thing is to make sure companies pay the 21% in tax, rather than raising it. The latter is not the problem.

That would explain why the wealth gap continues to grow and the middle class continues to shrink into the working poor class.

84.7% of all public stock is owned by the top 10%

The top 1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%

Its so clear now where i was wrong.  Lolzz

All of that is true, but also irrelevant.

Taxing the company more because their stocks go up in price isn't the way to do it. Because of the reasons mentioned in my previous post.

Tax them on the revenue or something. But not on their stock prices.

i wasnt aware anyone wanted to tax stock prices.  Im only aware of taxing capital gains and dividends off of stock, which is income for stock owners.
