The ‘wealthy’ were paying more than 90% of their incomes under democrat Carter. The economy struggled because there was not enough money left to investors to start or broaden businesses. Republican Reagan set that mess when he required over, say thanks to God. NO Very few were paying the top rate because these were not taking incomes that high.
How stupid do you think they were? Investments in your business are taxes deductible so they were not effected by high taxes rates. If anything these were more attractive than paying 90%. Carter’s economy was deeply effected by OPEC’s tripling of oil prices and its own impact was inflation rippling through everything. The FED raised interest rates thru the roof killing GDP growth then. Still Carter had more jobs created than Reagan did in either of his terms.

I am cautiously positive that the Grand Plan could work, which would lead to a period of European Renaissance. For it to work, however, a lot of things have to visit right. Of all First, you need all of the actors to fall under line and nobody to give up because “enough will do”. So watch the upcoming Greek elections and watch the forthcoming French elections for how much support Marine Le Pen gets as important barometers of discontent on the Street. I remain positive because we aren’t at that breaking point because, regardless of the mass content with the bailout plan, the latest opinion polls of Greeks show that 77% want to stay in the eurozone “at all costs”.
As well, you must have an accommodative Dr. Draghi (and Dr. Bernanke) standing by to inject the patient with additional quantitative easing morphine if required while he is still in recovery. That has been accomplished. WSJ: Could you be open to doing more, or longer, LTROs if needed? Draghi: You know how exactly we answer these questions. Also notice the way the ECB’s LTRO program amounts to de facto quantitative easing and money printing, but there hasn’t been a single phrase of protest from the German hardliners? That’s a sign that there surely is a Grand Plan which the elites are executing.
The jury is out on the Grand Plan but if this all works, Merkel could be lionized as the new Draghi and Thatcher as the new Maestro.

Dimon spends time talking about the best bank issue. The thing that annoys me concerning this discussion is that the largest problems (well, OK, Citi was a problem) were Lehman, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. Oh, and AIG, which wasn’t a good bank or investment company or investment bank or investment company. JPM, WFC and even BAC did fine throughout the turmoil.
Well, BAC got into trouble for what it do during the crisis, but I believe they were fine entering it. Anyway, here are some interesting charts in Dimon’s notice that shows our big banks aren’t even that big, speaking relatively, compared to other countries. Call me stubborn (or stupid), but I still think Glass-Steagall is no problem, really.
I know many veterans on Wall Street (even the ones that needed it repealed) believe that Glass-Steagall should be reinstated and that investment banking institutions and commercial banking institutions should be separated. It has made any sense to me never. Or many to fail too? Buffett probably has the best answer to all or any of this; clawbacks and ensure that the CEO results in the poorhouse if their bank fails.
