Oh look, more lolbertarians sperging about the imminent meltdown of the global financial system. Fiat money is really over this time guys, I promise. Buy gold you'll never sell and guns you'll never use.
Thank you for the input, the thread exit is to your left. Watch the door, wouldn't want it to hit you on the way out.

In Tax We Trust

Over 100 millionaires call for higher taxes worldwide: 'Tax us now'

To put it simply, restoring trust requires taxing the rich. The world - every country in it - must demand the rich pay their fair share. Tax us, the rich, and tax us now.

The truth is that ‘Davos’ doesn’t deserve the world’s trust right now. For all the countless hours spent talking about making the world a better place, the conference has produced little tangible value amidst a torrent of self-congratulations. Until participants acknowledge the simple, effective solution staring them in the face - taxing the rich - the people of the world will continue to see their so-called dedication to fixing the world's problems as little more than a performance.

History paints a pretty bleak picture of what the endgame of extremely unequal societies looks like. For all our well-being - rich and poor alike - it’s time to confront inequality and choose to tax the rich. Show the people of the world that you deserve their trust.

If you don’t, then all the private talks won’t change what’s coming - it’s taxes or pitchforks. Let’s listen to history and choose wisely.

Weird flex, but ok.

These faggots realize that they can just pay taxes, right? The issue is that the majority of them just flat out aren't. Like, listen to Disney's sons and daughters scream "Tax us! Tax us!" as if it's something that has to be done involuntarily to them. Bitch, if you want to pay tax just do it, and if you want to pay your fair share of tax then stop laundering money through 'charities', stop 'borrowing liquidity' solely on pinky promises and asset collateral so that there's no auditable trail, stop hiding money in Cayman accounts, etc.

Once you arrive at a certain level of wealth you don't get richer by making more money. You get richer by changes in the scorekeeping system that is the set of rules that govern the economy. Counterintuitively, by paying higher taxes--when others are also forced to--your relative levels of wealth can actually go up. There is no altruism here.

The game right now is these ultra-elite faggots vs the less-elite faggots. Basically (from a US perspective), the Republicans are the party of millionaires and the 1% while the Democrats are the party of billionaires and the 0.1%. The millionaires are more likely to have made their wealth being really good at their job which at times involves serving the common person, like a doctor or construction boss and their business. They aren't as plugged into the system of global governance as the billionaire class is, and even after two years of scamdemic the billionaire class failed to eliminate them. For the Great Reset to happen, they must be assimilated or reduced to peasants.

The millionaires aren't really good people themselves, since many of them gladly went along and donated to neocon wars or engaged in all sorts of scams themselves, but they're closer to the actual mass of the general public than the billionaires are. All the billionaires can do is offer you to the chance to be a serf under their neo-feudalism, while the millionaires don't really give a fuck what happens to you, either you being a perpetual debt slave or you joining their ranks, so long as they make money.

Not just the US. In Britain the Labour Party, who used to be for the common, working-class man/family, are now purely focused on rich, champagne socialists from extremely rich backgrounds, like upper class and the likes.

Whereas the conservative party (Tories) are the old school captains of industry and mean old factory owning millionaires. Yet, because they need to the working man to keep working to earn the millionaires money, and the billionaires and super rich earn money from having money, the party of the working class and the party of the rich have swapped roles in terms of who cares for the working man.

The working man is still getting as shafted as he ever as (relatively speaking) but the choice is now getting shafted with lube (tories) or getting raped in a dark carpark by Lex the Impaler at 3am (labour)

Just wait a few years, and we'll all be millionaires.

BT (and other ISP's) are raising prices by "inflation busting" 9%. Why does this matter? Because it's a solid barometer that inflation is much higher than what we're being told. I know us in the thread know it, but there are comments - hidden between the 'us and them' bitching, where the normies are aware that we are above 9%, and that the figures are being fiddled.

Nothing can stop what is about to happen now. If you are holding a bag in a hard asset, be it land, precious metals, hell, even crypto, hold onto it and don't let go, even if it means eating bugs for the next year.
If you flipped a coin to decide what the FED policy moving forward would be you'd have about as good of a guess as any "expert", quite literally they are between a rock and a hard place. Their options are 1. Raise rates to fight inflation and watch the everything bubble implode eroding all confidence in western financial systems and quite possibly killing the dollar in the process, or 2. Keep rates down, or dare I say lower them further, and print to infinity almost certainly guaranteeing the dollars death. Really we're headed for the same outcome either way, its just a matter of which path we take.

I ran this through google translate from Hungarian and got the following



Now I'm even more confused.

Sorry I was mocking soyboys. Meant burgers in dollars. And they do high quality hamburgers here, oddly enough. They are more expensive than the regulars, but it kind of transforms McDonalds from trash tier food to mid tier restaurant.

Depends entirely on how long the world is going to be willing to tolerate the US exporting its inflation abroad because its the reserve currency. Also 'the experts' tend to be myopic on the US, and its situation with the Fed, places like Canada can easily eat shit because they're stampeding towards over 100% debt-to-gdp which can cause a domino effect to all countries linked to it. Interestingly, Russia has a very low debt-to-gdp ratio and likely won't have too much trouble in the coming decade -- outside of the fact all of the consumers of their gas products going into default and economic capitulation.

Its okey here. Ate it in western europe once, never again. Haven't tried US variety.
I mean it's not terrible if you need something warm to put inside yourself.

It beats, say Wienerschnitzel. The hot dog shaped salt crystal joint, not the Central European version of a chicken fried steak.

McDonald's isn't food. It's a consumable item.
McD’s is basically “it’s there, it’s quick, and it’s cheap.” Even then, the Cheap part has gotten less accurate ever since the Coof and money printing started.

Keep in mind that’s in Canada’s Monopoly Money, but still - when the cost of the bottom of the barrel is rising, that’s usually a bad sign.
