If its not used harshly, then it's just doing some very simple things such as creating an economy where you don't have to pay tax at all and also allowing the people rich enough to have a yacht to continue to have more kids when their estate is not taxable.

But most of all, to have a billionaire for a first cousin…. Reply Delete

Yes, it pays to have a billionaire for a mother. It pays to have a single parent for most (if not all) the babies - and even moreso when the one parent is dead. It is more important to have a one-parent family living in the US. It seems the US is one step away from becoming a single parent country. Perhaps, single parents that want to avoid the death tax on their children and their immediate family are the majority. There seems to be a growing trend to get rid of the death tax on the wealthy….

I am pretty sure that they arent. They do need an additional income from whatever business this woman is doing as a secretary. So, do those people need government help or not? I will never understand that people would be that stupid. Reply Delete

My husband and I are not billionaires. No, not millionaires either. We live on a single salary just barely enough to survive but not good enough to support our two small children. But, we live on a boat. We own it as well. And to say we aren’t billionaires because we don’t have a car or a big house is just plain ignorant. Reply Delete

Our children are not rich. But we are not billionaires. Neither is our family. We are not either rich or close to rich. We are also not poor. No, we do not live off government or government handouts. But, they do exist, and they do help some people (in the form of tax credits). I see this as a form of unfairness though. To call a person either rich or poor doesn’t matter. It just matters that they are either rich or poor. These things are not different, what matters is how they are managed. Reply Delete

I love it that you make sure that your readers know things when they couldnt care less, and as a result these people, have been able to survive as they have, and they have many more children than you thought. It makes for a nice story with a lovely backdrop. Reply Delete

I know this is a bit far for me in saying that there must be some kind of system that could be used to make the rich help the poor. But, the way this story has been told, i think it should be treated as though it’s true. Reply Delete

I agree, the system is “spiteful”, but also quite powerful and often abused. If its not used harshly, then it’s just doing some very simple things such as creating an economy where you don’t have to pay tax at all and also allowing the people rich enough to have a yacht to continue to have more kids when their estate is not taxable. Now, that said, many people live off of their hard-earned money which is usually tax-deductible, so there are a lot of people who don’t have to worry about death or taxes yet. Reply Delete

Forbes recently estimated that Musk earns roughly 20 million per year, so his pay rises by about 15 after taxes and other basic expenses, so a good chunk of that would be paid by investors buying Tesla stock. And that cold air gets transported southward, past the Antarctic, and over the Arctic, across the equator, and all the way south to Australia.
