    Why would you give an example you know to be incorrect?
    It's an example of the way it works. Tax percentage goes up gradually as wage increases, I didn't feel the need to calculate exact tax percentages :rolleyes:

    You could counter that with many of the biggest money makers aren't productive they simply make money by gambling. For example beat up the banks and the casinos and all the money they made wouldn't just disappear, others would be making that money instead.

    Some people deserve to be patronised.

    Then why bother posting exact earnings? Why not just fill your post with vagueness if you don't want to be challenged on anything?

    Furthermore the blokes at the top would obviously just go to a different bar with relative ease in the example given, this isn't always the case in the real world. Most people (even millionaires) wouldn't move country just to be marginally more wealthy.
    Even if you do want to move, it's not always possible because some countries have capital controls.

    Exactly.

    For me the analogy is lazy, the people 'drinking for free' are more often than not people fully employed on obscenely low wages. If that is drinking for free then I''d prefer to be paying for my drinks.
