Re: Biden plan to limit 401K deductions

I have thought it reasonable to have a single max total amount tax deferrable for retirement.

Remove the penalties for those without access to employer provided plans.

$20k/filer via any vehicle (or something like that).

Re: Biden plan to limit 401K deductions

Playing devil's advocate, Why do only democrats have to pay for things?

Last few President's, growth of the deficit goes up under Republicans, down under Democrats.

Gone up bigly under current administration.

Re: Car ownership vs. Rideshare

I wonder how long until the costs go up. I believe not profitable. And potential for costs to go up as there are changes to how driver's are treated (independent contractor vs employee). Note: not wanting to turn this into a political discussion, but that IMO is something to consider longer term fro...

What about a principle that you can't vote for an office until you're old enough to hold it?

Re: This pretty much sums it up

I've long thought 25 as voting age. Most should have some experience living on their own to some extent by then. How does that fit that when they are 18 they are old enough to be killed for their country? Can't that be analogized to "taxation without representation"? Vinny Different traits one look...

Re: Smith1776 ALERT!!! Next book for Smith1776??!!

P.S. The irony of a book on value investing selling at such an inflated price should not be lost on anyone. Perhaps that's the real world lesson of the book???

Re: What will happen to the PP if gold can be made in a lab?

Or a cost effective way to mine the asteroid belt.

Then depends on the demand.

And probably would behave differently.

At some point down the line.
