The top one per cent of fortunes holds two-fifths of the total wealth. Just one rich family, the six heirs of the brothers Sam and James Walton, founders of Walmart, are worth more than the bottom 40 per cent of the American population combined ($115 billion in 2012).
Most of IQ differences could perhaps be explained away by upbringing, family access to food and education, etc. However, I have not seen a good investigation which takes all of that into account.
I have not seen non-biased investigations - accounting for family income, education level, etc.
It is very well known that in Europe IQ's have been rising in last few centuries, even in places with little war. it is also fairly well known that poor nutrition in childhood decreases IQ.
except, say, for people who attempt to farm in Manhattan or San Francisco.
Consumption taxes are the worst form of base taxation there is. Precisely when needed, they fail, such as in a War or Depression.
Taxes on a fair return for labor are also bad, since your wages/salary is really just an even (poor, really) exchange of irreplaceable lifetime and labor for money. Naturally, people with lots of land and capital prefer taxing labor.
Especially since they can recycle some of the wages they pay via their money back to themselves. Government Office Rent, Office Supplies, big standing Armies, benefit money holders since they own the land and businesses supplying those. Even HUD benefits Slumlords as it sets a floor for basic housing and HUD never misses or is late with a payment; YUM! Brands loves Food Stamps, as does 7-11 (7&I Holdings), all of which are paid via WIC and EBT programs.
Density is even better. We don't say the main solution to aggregate computing power is to build one million more 386 machines from the 1995, but to replace existing 386s with new "dense" Modern Architecture CPUs.
The articles states that the Expansive Welfare State makes degrees like Social Work and Grievance Studies plausible, along with the huge expanse of Government Workers. But an expansive welfare state can not subsist on a Georgist Tax Base.
But what about unregulated Free Market Capitalism which is without flaws?
When you are in an era when the example the President of the United States sets for children is that being amoral and dishonest is supposedly the way to be,
According to a poll, 92% of Americans said option #1 is preferable.
That's before they were told that option #1 describes Sweden and option #2 describes the US.
"The results show that large positive and negative trends in cohort IQ operate within as well as across families. This implies that the trends are not due to a changing composition of families, and that there is at most a minor role for explanations involving genes (e.g., immigration and dysgenic fertility) and environmental factors largely fixed within families (e.g., parental education, socialization effects of low-ability parents, and family size). While such factors may be present, their influence is negligiblecompared with other environmental factors"https://conversableeconomist.blogspot.com/2019/01/the-flynn-effect-rising-iq-scores-over.html
Ok so smart women have less offsprings. i.e. dysgenic fertility. I didn't get how this explains a loss of IQ within the same family from parents (mother) to kids.
Interesting! Single Mothers, the #1 Social and now Genetic Disease effecting the nation.
No, everybody knows the key to wealth is you fork over all tax money to the wealthiest people
All Republicans in Congress have a minimum wage, $174,000/year + benefits & their voters don't make them punch a time clock.How much does Trump's base make? I'm sure they have 0 copay under Trumpcare benefits. Somebody's stupid!
Trust me, when they get done destroying the government of the people, you WILL NOT like it.
Why would chinese and japanese complain they were not occupied and looted by europeans of both materials and knowledge. Africa and India did.
None of the facts you listed are wrong. But all I am saying is your small brain can think of only 500yrs. Where as the history out there is much-much older.
British have been teaching people in south that they are different from north for 100+ years. And these differences still drive people today.
Do you have any proof that south and north were 2 different countries or kingdoms? I just posted India's 1760 map on other thread did you even bother to check it? why is that important because that is when british started to visit india and start foothold in bengal.
What do you mean indira gandhi caused conflict. Are you a pakistani talking about 1971 war?
Pakistan is a breeding ground for terrorists. They sent out a terrorist and killed 44 soldiers with a car bomb.. Modi decided to retaliate and kill terrorists in their training camps so that they will not dare to attack again.USA kills terrorists half way around the world. India should not defends its own borders.Dont worry Modi will find a solution for Kashmir by clearing pakis out of gilgit baltistan.
You want proof that India is same race and culture: You ask me about it.There are 12 rivers in India from north to south. Every year 1 river is celebrated in 12 year cycle. If the cultures are different why would one region respect others?There was a religious reformer atleast in 500 BC. He setup religious places of knowledge in 4 corners of present day India. And other smaller religious places called peeta in 26 places some of them are in present day pakistan and bangladesh.
So you are another of those "shit brained" liberals who dont have any logic. Did you hold placards outside white house asking US govt not to kill osama?Liberals in India are worst They held placards and asked govt to not to kill terrorists arrested in India.
India is no ones bitch anymore. Around 900AD ghazwa-e-hind was declared and india was attacked troops 4 different kingdom came together and beat the troops so bad that caliphate disintegrated.Which is not taught in any history book, not even in India.
Another comment with no logic or pure lies. What do you mean recent invention.
The celebrations were happening atleast for 5000 yrs with recorded history. Celtics can claim if they were still doing that even today. They ran away because of other tribes. Indians did it even under muslim and british rule.
pakistan, bangladesh were carved out of "british india".
Nepal and tibet had treaties with british India.
After british left India did not occupy nepal. But China occupied tibet.Its high time that people outside India stop tell it how to behave.No one calls tiammen square massacre conflict it is pure oppression of ones citizens.
Is europe considered 1 race? They are all caucasoids I think.No one will say all of India is one race.
Only if you tell it its history. If someone else tells it, its a story?That his-story I was explaining to Rin because he says India was always conquered by outsider. And I wanted to point out the lies in that narrative.You talk about low IQ and point out that EIC formed in 1600 and immediately started occupying the world...British became a political power in 1757 when they defeated the bengal kings.
If osama was dead in 2002, why were 6trillion $ of tax-payer money mine and your spent hunting him. And only before obama was done with his presidency he was killed miraculously.
I never deny open defacation is a problem. But you cannot provide proper toilets to everyone, and the corrupt governments never do it.The present prime minister is much better he helped build 40million toilets. It will take sometime and push from government to fix the problem. Then people like Reality come in and say you hindu nationalist party war mongerer why dont you have a status quo of a slave as before.
So a State can choose EC delegates randomly from a phone book, for example. Likewise, other States can agree to collectively do in a compact as per the above.
All your comments are lies or half truths but I am bored with replying to each one of them. So here is a video
Here is its map durig 2 different but important kingdoms.
Ok lets make a deal you watch the video and make a comment on what you think of it. I promise I will reply to everyone of your comments?
I too dont care about maps but how do you explain that to people who dont even know abcs of other civilization. We need to debunk their narratives through their own lenses.
Indian "culture" spread all the way from west asia to southeast-asia and far-east asia. And there is no record of anyone forcing it on them.
But people like Rin say India is always a bitch. People of sword only understand the meaning of sword. And think whole world will respect and listen to only it.
