Ben Stein: AOC is no different from Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Tse-tung!

They really can't help themselves, can they.


...Ben Stein was never funny.

Ben Stein? I could have easily mistaken him for Ben Shapiro, considering how the shorty is obsessed with AOC.

Because he can't shut her up by saying standard insane-right talking points really really fast.

Ben Shapiro: This is why I hate debating women. I can't lose myself in the broad shoulders and handsome features of a man. No homo.

Davos elites being elitist as fuck and getting smacked down by an academic who knows what he's talking about.

Quote
Heather Long (Economic Correspondent, Washington Post): There are growing calls to address these inequalities, particularly the wage inequality, with more taxes. In particular, in the United States, there's been a call by Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez to tax people earning over ten million at a seventy percent tax rate. The current top rate in the United States is thirty-seven percent. Michael Dell, do you support this?

(General laughter.)

Panelist: I just wanna say, I'm thrilled that they're asking you this.

Michael Dell (CEO, Dell Technologies): Wow. Well, look, I mean, um, you know, my wife and I set up a foundation about twenty years ago and we would have contributed quite a bit more than a seventy percent tax rate on my income, on my annual income, and I feel much more comfortable with our ability as a private foundation to allocate those funds than I do giving them to the government.

Long: All right, all right.

Dell: So no, I'm not supportive of that. And (repeated multiple times) I don't think it would help the growth of the US economy,

Long: Oh, that's interesting. And can you say a little more about why? Why you don't think it would?

Dell: Well, name a country where that's worked. Ever.

Erik Brynjolfsson (Director of MIT's Initiative on the Digital Economy): The United States.

Long: Briefly, in the 80s.

Brynjolfsson: No, no, no, from about the 1930s through about the 1960s, the tax rate averaged about seventy percent. At times it was up as high as ninety-five percent, and those were actually pretty good years for growth. So, I don't have a strong opinion on that a lot, the devil is in the details, um, but I think it's, uh, there's actually a lot of economics that suggests that it's not necessarily going to hurt growth.

I would also point out the Nordic countries, at incomes much lower than Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's proposal would have.
