Biderman’s Daily Edge 4/3/2012: Corporate Income Taxes are Horribly Destructive


The Unites States now has the highest corporate income tax globally. Congratulations. Corporate income tax is the worst, most capital and value destroying tax of all types of taxation. And we are the leaders.

To understand why corporate income tax destroys capital over the long term; you need to first to understand that all there is in a corporation are people; nothing other then people managing and working at growing a business.
