Death and taxes… Oh yea and a bunch more in taxes in Congress gets their way. It always puzzled me that no one ever bothers to explain a simple economic truth, which is the basic underpinning of a capitalist system that in a very short period of time made the United States the most powerful country on the world.

For some very misguided reason the socialists (you know who they are) always have the idea that all the wealthy people got that way by winning a lottery and they are simply lucky and their wealth should be redistributed to the downtrodden or “unlucky”.  That couldn’t be further from the truth. Setting aside a few lottery winners the wealthy and the big corporations they built created the wealth by understanding how to leverage capital and create value that translates into profits and jobs and capital to reinvest.  They understand how to do this and simply put the downtrodden do not. Then ask yourself what do those wealthy people do with all that money?  Do they write billion dollar checks to themselves and stick it under their mattresses? Of course not, what they do is reinvest it and grow the businesses and create even more value and jobs and wealth. They provide the capital for new startups, biotech industries that cure all manner of diseases and on and on and on. All of that is the source for jobs for those that either are not capable of building a business or choose to do an 8 to 5 gig.

Sooooo what if we take all that capital away from the guys and gals that now how to create value and wealth with capital and give it to those idiots in Washington to spend who have undoubtedly the worst investing track record EVER.

Sooner or later you run out of money to take away from the wealthy and have now created a welfare state with exorbitant taxes for all.

Just look at Afghanistan: Since 2001 we spent $83 billion on equipment and training and what do we have to show for it?- exactly nothing and bunch of our military killed in action. Nice job guys! Where do I sign up to send you more money ?

Raising tax rates on corporations and high-income households is a key part of Democrats’ plan to pay for their proposed multi-trillion-dollar social spending plan, but opposition to that approach from Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona has sent lawmakers scrambling to find alternative ways to offset costs.

Given Sinema’s resistance, there’s a growing chance that the corporate income tax rate could remain untouched in the Democratic budget bill. Even the compromise rate of 25% reportedly preferred by Sen. Joe Manchin appears to be on shaky ground.

ValuEngine Weekly Report

By: Herb Blank

The ETF reports on ValuEngine for funds that follow market benchmarks provide a side benefit in writing market analyses.  They are a window to the implicit forecasts for 1-, 3-, 6- and 12-month forecasts VE models are making for each benchmark’s ETF portfolio.  This is because the ratings and projections combine bottom-up constituent analysis with analyses of the historical price movements of the ETF in different market environments.   

The benchmark indexes chosen for this feature are:

  1. The S&P 400 MidCap Index representing US MidCap (MDY)
  2. The Russell 2000 Index representing US Small Cap (IWM)
  3. The Russell 1000 Large Cap Growth Index (IWF)
  4. The Russell 1000 Large Cap Value Index (IWD)
  5. The Nasdaq-100, constructed as an index using the top 100 non-financial stocks with primary listing on the Nasdaq, but now regarded as the premier US Big Tech Index (QQQ)
  6. The S&P 500 Index representing US Large Cap (IVV)
