Never liked Bernie but Elon is just straight disrespectful in this tweet. Like wtf you don’t say stuff like this it’s his opinion and he’s allowed to have it. Thread is not about who’s right or wrong it’s just never okay to say stuff like this. twitter.com/elonmusk/status/145989123838..

Musk provided the initial concept and financial capital for SolarCity, which his cousins Lyndon and Peter Rive co-founded in 2006. Musk is the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineer at SpaceX. Early-stage investor, CEO, and Product Architect of Tesla, Inc. Founder of The Boring Company. Co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI. Co-founder of web software company Zip2 with brother Kimbal. Co-founded online bank X.com, which merged with Confinity in 2000 to form PayPal. Elon is a productive man that have achieved more than 99.99% of us ever will.

Boring company, Solar City are just dumb concepts that will never work irl. People investing in those companies are getting scammed by a billionaire conman. Throw Hyperloop in there too. Musk wasn't even the founder of Tesla. The dude literally bought the "Founder" title. Btw I'm also the Founder, President CEO, COO, CTO, Chief Engineer, early investor at spiderCAKE Industries.
2021-11-15 21:41
"Musk is making solar panels, electric cars, reusable rockets, flamethrowers " - many people were doing solar panels before him - Electric Cars already existed before Tesla (but Tesla, not him, actually innovated) - Reusable rockets? I guess you never eared of the space-shuttle? (In an ironic twist Space-X is also subsidized by the US government and Elon didn't invent shit) - Flamethrowers? Are you serious? We have those since 1919 and better ones. Also Elon ones are glorified lighters because it's a weapon and can't even be comercialized in most countries, with several people already spending time in jail because of it. In conclusion Elon is nothing more and nothing less than another glorified salesman like Steve Jobs was... The difference is that Steve Jobs wasn't a millionaire because his father didn't owned half of an Apartheid emerald mine.

yes it is 40% but the 1% mostly steal their wealth from their workers labour and do not work for their money at all so in that sense no they do not pay their fair share they should pay much much higher percentage i.e 80-90% but that is also hard because of how easy it is for them to avoid taxes and because governments are bought by the rich to do their bidding this is almost impossible

Maybe that 1% richest people, owns more than just 30% of all the money on the USA so they should pay more? In proportion, all the billionaires pay less than you and me because they can move their money to Caiman Islands "legally" and avoid taxes. For example, Netflix was paying less than 10k€ on taxes in Spain+France when they are earning millions there, is that fair? I don't think so.

If you want to complain about tax havens, I understand that, and it's an issue. The only reason they would do that in the first place is the policitians and their politics that is faulty, not the rich people themselves though. The politicians had opportunity for 100 years to legislate against this behaviour but instead they support it and even use it themselves. Even Bernie is a multi-millionaire, try tax him 90% or whatever you're asking for, and watch him squirm and move his wealth to some tax haven. Even if you raised the taxes on the rich to 100% or whatever the radicals think is "fair", that still wouldn't change the fact politicians are just burning money and giving government contracts to corporations who support them and putting some money in their own pockets. And they are not there to solve any problems, they are basically creating problems so they have something to promise to voters that they will solve if they get elected.

Great argument, "Well bernie why don't you give all of your money to the government right now", because it literally has no effect, and no one is suppose to give all that they have. The goal is to close loopholes and make sure billionares pay as much taxes as their suppose to, just like every other citizen. Kinda difficult to get it done since there is corruption and bootlickers

I'm not asking to tax more the rich, in fact, they could lowered in some countries where's around 50% of their income. The thing is, to make them pay what they should, not more and not less, which is the only fair way to me. What it makes no sense is they use a Tax haven and companies move the money to netherlands, then to Ireland and then to cayman islands or wherever they want to pay like 1-8% tax instead than 20-40% or whatever they should. Rich people can do this pretty easy while someone who's struggling to buy food at the end of the month, is paying more % than someone who can buy a new ferrari every day and manipulates the cripto market with a couple of tweets when he would be on jail if he tries to do it with stocks or something regulated.

"A September 2017 study by the Federal Reserve reported that the top 1% owned 38.5% of the country's wealth in 2016." And they pay 40% of total taxes. Sounds pretty damn fair to me.

There's a difference between wealth owned and income, and then again with taxable income specifically In any case, that value is still very low for what's supposed to be a progressive tax scale

I'm just not convinced raising taxes on rich people would make the governments of the world any more responsible with how they spend their money. All it does is any successful businesses and businessmen move somewhere else where they feel they pay something more "fair", so ironically they could potentially generate less tax income by raising it more. "Fair" is very subjective.

I mean, that is an utopia to think the world/country could unite and solve a "problem" or stop "wasting" money on "useless" things. Simply because people are different, and their beliefs and core beliefs differ, hence not being able to solve certain "problems" because to some it is not a problem while to others it might be. On top of that you have lobbyists. The world is complicated, yeah...

No. It'll be more than 38.5% you imbecile: the problem is that most of their wealth is registered in tax havens or sent to their own charitable trust funds to make it tax deductible. The ultra-rich use a plethora of legal loopholes, which most people don't have the resources to do too.

If a person makes a billion dollars and pays 1% in tax, he's going to pay more tax money than 1000 people who make 33,000 a year and would pay 30% in tax. It's not like people are asking the rich to pay all of their wealth in taxes but the actual fair amount. The people making 33,000 are being robbed with the labour they do by the guys making the billion, and they don't get any benefits out of it even though they pay more taxes from their labour by percentually.

So it's more logical for poor people to want tax cuts, not getting increased taxes for the rich. It's basically the same thing if what you said is correct. And most governments are highly ineffective in anything they do, compared to private businesses.

It's more "logical" in a shit economy system where you don't get benefits for paying taxes to want tax cuts, for example in America. People like Bernie want to give the people who pay taxes benefits for those taxes AND wants the rich to pay their fair share. This creates social safety nets and motivates people to work as their work would have benefits to them and they wouldn't be fully robbed for their labour. So people who push the rich to pay "more" taxes, in other words the equal amount to the "poor" or the average Joe so they can provide them with benefits that makes the jobs worth more. They're not fully robbed out of their labour if they get a decent pay AND benefits for it. If you make tax cuts for the poor, it means you cut public benefits from the poor. No unemployment benefits, no help with housing, homelessness would skyrocket and the quality of life would plummet.

#118 basically applies here. Some people trust their governments harder than others. In America, same with Russia, we don't have a lot of trust. You Scandinavians seem happy to pay 50% taxes because "benefits" but to others we don't see the benefits matching up with the amounts we pay. If we paid a private owned company the same money they would have better roads, better schools, better healthcare, because there's less money burned on bureucracy.

It does and it doesn't. If you would have people in charge who actually believe in making the quality of life better for everyone and making the super rich pay their fair share things would be different. If you have these hogs in charge who just want to benefit as much as possible from the broken system, they will never drive for change and for the tax "raising." America has a problem with the 2 party system, Russia has a full blown out corruption problem. If people like Bernie would be in charge, the chance of the money being burned in bureaucracy wouldn't be as likely as with the current government. It would still happen but to a lesser extent. It could also lead to what Finland does, Finnish government supports the private companies and that keeps the private sector "happy" while the public gets the benefits from the private company that they wouldn't be able to access otherwise. The money that people pay in tax is getting put back to the society rather than being stacked in the 1% pockets. It's not perfect but we'll never find a perfect system because of greed.
2021-11-14 20:38
No, that's a massive oversimplification. Elons primary wealth comes from his Tesla ownership/investment, as we know. However, dollar for dollar, Tesla runs a massive loss per unit - it doesn't make any profit off the cars it sells. However, it receives billions in subsidies from the EPA for promoting "clean energy initiatives" - despite the fact that the environmental cost of producing a new Tesla is significantly greater than running an existing car on gas for the rest of its operating life. Therefore, the problem isn't that government subsidies are good or bad, it's that most tax revenue taken from the non-wealthy goes to funding the already wealthy, then those wealthy and their drones suddenly argue that government subsidies are bad when they go to people who aren't already wealthy. Recently, Amouranth was effectively paid by the US government to purchase a gas station that will make her money due to the subsidies it netted her: kotaku.com/twitch-streamer-amouranth-bou.. TLDR: Elon's current wealth is entirely based on government subsidies, so naturally he opposes subsidies for people that aren't him. As an example of the retarded US welfare system that Bernie is referring to, Amouranth is able to buy a gas station for $-110,000 due to government handouts and tax breaks.

Didn't talk about tax rates, what I meant was out of every single tax dollar the US state rakes in they pay over 30% (actual number is 40%). So if state gets total of 1 billion, they pay 400 million out of those even though they are only 1% of population. So not talking about how much they pay per person, just the total amounts. Also Fed numbers claimed they owned 38,5% of total wealth in the country which I think sounds pretty fair. And I know you guys in Sweden loves paying taxes, even though your public schools doesn't produce any great results according to international studies, and public health care as well as public retirement homes are on a huge decline and your roads seems just as good as roads of Denmark where they pay a lot less in tax. And your state has monopoly on alcohol sales and gambling, so I think you should want less taxes, not more taxes, because what exactly are the money going to, I just don't see the benefits from these huge numbers you give to the state? I'm suspecting your workers are just paying for immigrants who doesn't even like Sweden or Swedish culture basically with wellfare and housing for them. And aren't you supposed to work til your 70 years old before pension soon as well, all to get even more money for the state to spend but why is the quality of your wellfare in decline when they make more money than ever, it doesn't check out. That's why I'm saying government contracts are a lot less efficient and cost a lot more than private alternatives. Most money just disappear, and they always want more, giving themselves raises while the rest of the population have to suffer new taxes, like the infamous plastic tax. It's not like Sweden is the reason there are tons of plastic in the Pacific ocean...

Denmark has extremely high taxes just as Sweden lmao. Also all the tax money is being stolen by immigrants not doing work. Unemployment amongst immigrants is 20%!!! Unemployment for ethnic Swedes are only ~5%. Our system and state models would work if it wasn’t for immigration you clearly are clueless about Sweden before immigration happened. Highest ranking in absolutely everything and seen as the perfect middle way between socialism and capitalism. So yeah, we have a culture of paying our taxes and not whining about it. The problem is not high taxes but what it is spent on (Abdi and his unemployed family) which is why Sweden will have a right wing government after the next election.

Given that Elon's entire wealth is built on government subsidies, this and his fanboys' responses are hilarious. The only reason Tesla is profitable as a company is thanks to billions in EPA subsidies, but of course, he thinks government handouts are bad when they go to anyone besides him. The best part is all of his fanboys have already forgotten how he reversed his views on cryptocurrency within 24 hours because it jeopardized Tesla's qualification for those EPA handouts, and now they and the brainwashed neolib Bernie haters will call him communist when Elon is one of the biggest welfare queens in the history of this country (especially when you consider he isn't even American). It's just beautiful

It is the case that tesla got literally billions of dollars of investment from the government. You think that government did it because they want to help elon? Why would they do it? Well because it is a reasonable investment now tesla is a leader of a huge industry with us based production. All the government investments are planned by some many people who know better than you. Who else do you think would turn those "government hands out" into something like tesla and spacex. You think that someone who works 100h per week has to be taxed more than someone working 40h? I dont mean to offend you, but probably we wont agree on most of the things since you support bernie. You can keep your opinion no need to reply.

I personally favour the theory that this is more a case of greed and manipulation than stupidity on Elon's part. In my experience, most people don't bother formulating their own opinions on much at all, if anything, let alone a cohesive world view. It stands to reason that people don't notice inconsistencies in his behaviour when they aren't measuring it with a well calibrated instrument (mind/body/spirit). I believe he has one and he's foolishly using it to 'have a blast' in life at the expense of those who haven't bothered working to free themselves. I wouldn't recommend trying what he's doing and I wouldn't waste time in envy of it, that's a loveless world and despite the riches he may possess in the physical world and the smile he wears, his mind is hell. I know nothing of his divorce but if she learned something of his soul that would surely explain the separation. His fans are stuck in intellect which is a low level of thinking. If I thought Elon believed his words I would respect them regardless of any perceivable vulgarity, alas, if there is a shred of integrity in that man I think we're yet to see it.

actually you don't have to pay taxes when you're a billionaire unless you cash out some of your stocks and even then you only pay 20% as 'capital gain tax' which is nothing, and could be avoided via some loopholes, people hear the word 'billionaire' and instantly assume they have billions on their bank account

The idea that wealthy people do not pay their "fair share" is insane and simply not true. In 2018, the top 1% of earners in the US earned 21% of total income and paid 40% of total income tax, according to the IRS and heritage.org - you can look it up. Socialists/communists like Bernie Sanders think that they are entitled to other people's money. Elon Musk has created wealth for himself by creating products that people want, as well as creating wealth for all the people he has employed and everyone who holds Tesla stock. Bernie has leached off the taxpayer for basically his entire adult life with virtually no legislative achievements to show for it. I know whose side I am on.

I used the top 1% as an example. The source I used defined the top 1% of earners as people who earned $540k a year or above. There's an even bigger problem with what Bernie says that I didn't mention. Wealth does not just mean income; wealth means money and possessions etc. that people already have, which they only have after it was taxed in the first place (taxes on previous income, capital gains tax on investments, inheritance tax on wealth received from parents and so on). That wealth has already been taxed once, but Bernie wants to tax it again so that the government can spend it. It's ridiculous.

Except for the fact that the richest people don't amass wealth by means of wages but by investments. The fact that a relatively small group of individuals has such a large stake of all the wealth of the nation makes the rest of the population poorer, because it reduces the velocity of money, they do not consume as much as the rest of the population so money changes hands slower. So there is actually a problem with the current system, you may dislike Bernie for being an outspoken socialist, nevertheless he is clearly right in regards of the terrible inequalities that exist today in America.
2021-11-15 02:52

Correct, investments probably are a larger source of income than wages for many of the most successful Americans, but you can’t tax something that doesn’t exist, such as unrealised capital gains (which a recent proposal suggested taxing). In my opinion politicians should not be trying to reduce so called “wealth inequality.” If you believe that every person in a country should have the same level of wealth then you are nuts. If you want a country’s economy to succeed then you need people with wealth who can and choose to invest that wealth to create products and services. Income equality is slightly different, but specific to America, states should be free to make their own laws (such as minimum wage laws) and some states are more expensive to live in than other states. In that sense there will always be a natural income inequality.
2021-11-15 15:07

I wasn't referring to complete equality, which is not even possible to begin with as it would remove the incentive partially for innovation and fully for working. I, of course, know how difficult it is to implement a fair wealth tax, but I must insist that the status quo can not really last long. The stock market in itself is a great instrument to fund the development of companies in an efficient and at a continuous pace. Sadly, it still has market inefficiency, there have been a lot of periods of rampant speculation, today we find ourselves in another one. This has more to do with lower interest rates than anything else, I'm talking about the current bubble. A tax on unrealized gains from financial instruments should be avoided, I agree with you on that one. The real point is that companies should pay taxes on the profits they realize in the country where it has been made and not where the seat is. As a side note: Musk is a liar, a lot of what he says about his past is a lie designed to gain the sympathy of his followers. The fact that his employee have been exploited and that his factories have the worst safety records in the country says it all.

40million is abysmally low for a billionaire. Reply to me when you get a proper education and grow out of the bullshit taught to you in your homeschooling and stop simping for billionaires. Until then I'll just ignore you.

mmmmmmm as disrespectful as this may seem, i think he meant it in a "politically alive" or "active in politics" more than actually alive and breathing LOL remember that Bernie was almost president of the US, and now hes receding, obviously due to his age but his stances live on.

Bernie should retire and live with those stupid commie ideas in his retirement house.
2021-11-15 21:44
It's unnecessary and childish. I hope somebody close to him can straighten him out because he's a few tweets away from damaging his businesses

Tesla's valuation is partly a projection of confidence in Elon as a leader. I think their position in the market and the valuation is softer to public sentiment than you think
