It's Hump Day! Sam and Emma speak with Ian Millhiser, senior correspondent at Vox, to discuss some of the biggest cases before the Supreme Court this term. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on the Biden Administration's internal reckoning with their strategic failures in support of Israel, the US' minor aid to Gaza and minuscule conditions to punish violent settlers, the House's antisemitic antisemitism bill, Tommy Tuberville relinquishing his obstructive hold on military appointments, the Senate's aid to Ukraine and Israel, the upcoming GOP Debate, and the continuing extreme temperature of 2023, before parsing through the insanity of the House's “anti-zionism is antisemitism” bill, with some help from Jewish Rep. Jerrold Nadler. Ian Milhiser then joins, diving right into an assessment of the impending Supreme Court decision on Moore v. US, a case that will define the possibility of a federal wealth tax as conservatives attempt to tie the taxation of unrealized sums to the apportionment clause in the constitution. After walking through what apportionment, unrealized sums, and “direct taxation” could mean (with some help from Sonya Sotomayor), Milhiser walks Sam and Emma through the newest SCOTUS case involving the “Major Questions Doctrine” – tackling what that doctrine entails, and why the 5th circuit is using it to put the SEC, and the administrative state writ large, in their crosshairs, before working through the 5th Circuit's prominent role working under a conservative Supreme Court, and where Chief Justice Roberts, himself, stands on the doctrine. Wrapping up, they explore the upcoming case against Perdue Pharmaceuticals – as the Sacklers attempt to shirk their liabilities onto the business – and the First Amendment attacks on the BDS movement. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma discuss the official denial of Cenk Uygur's presidential candidacy, watch Dana Bash attempt to throw Rep. Jayapal – and Palestinian victims of sexual assault – under the bus to maintain her narrative, which Ryan Grim refuses to let go unacknowledged. They watch Israeli President Isaac Herzog attempt to defend the mass slaughter of Palestinian civilians under pretexts of Hamas' supposed drive for global domination, and Tim Pool and Matt Walsh really sink into their respective niches of bigotry, plus, your calls and IMs!

The National Security Hour with Col. Mike and Dr. Mike – Bipartisan, of course, simply means that all members of the Senate and House get equal payments from the arms makers. It has nothing to do with America's defense and survival. Indeed, the bill is a promise for more interventionist foreign wars like those currently being lost in Ukraine and Israel-Gaza...

Marita Sciarrotta, the new acting director of New Jersey's Division of Taxation, will have a busy year ahead as she settles into the role. Sciarrotta, who spent 40 years in the tax division before taking over as acting director in September, said in an interview that she wants to modernize the state's property tax relief programs—an endeavor that likely will require legislation to make needed changes. She also plans to increase hiring as state revenue agencies across the nation grapple with a growing number of vacancies that can impede their abilities to provide financial oversight. On this episode of Talking Tax, reporter Danielle Muoio Dunn spoke with Sciarrotta about her plans as the division takes on lawmakers' overhaul of New Jersey's corporate tax system and the creation of StayNJ, a property tax relief program for seniors. Sciarrotta also discussed her long tenure in the division and the sexism she's faced over the years. "There are some people that kind of tend to be siloed off and one of the things I found to be most advantageous in my career is that I get like a morbid curiosity and I will ask about anything to anyone and stick my nose in a lot of different places," Sciarrotta said.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) report discloses that over 800 large companies did not pay any tax in the fiscal year 2021-22. In its ninth corporate tax transparency report, encompassing 2,713 corporate entities, the ATO observed a rise in overall tax collection, attributed to surging profits in mining companies and elevated oil prices. However, the report also highlights that 831 companies, constituting 31 percent of the total, did not contribute any tax payments. Armstrong, a certified Chartered Accountant of Australia, brings forth his extensive experience in Audit and Taxation, spanning over two decades, to elucidate the issue.

In this thought-provoking episode of the Free Thought Project podcast, hosts Jason and Matt welcome Jack V. Lloyd, a multifaceted content producer dedicated to the cause of liberty. Jack's diverse portfolio includes a mix of fiction and nonfiction works, ranging from educational videos, music, and comics to influential books such as "The Definitive Guide to Libertarian Voluntaryism," "A Vision for a Libertarian Future," and "Philosophical Voluntaryism." Jack is not only recognized for his creative ventures like "Voluntaryist – The Comic Series" and "The Pholosopher," but also for igniting the popular "Taxation is Theft" meme movement during his time with Anarchyball. His unique experiences as a criminal defense lawyer, government school teacher, and tutoring company owner infuse his work with a deep understanding of human freedom and the importance of maintaining it against all odds. In our conversation, we delve into the alarming tendency of individuals to abandon their principles in favor of party loyalty, even when it leads to endorsing destructive policies. We explore the human condition that drives such behavior and discuss strategies to cultivate a society that values principles over partisanship. Jack also shares insights from his latest book and his ongoing comic series, providing listeners with a glimpse into his creative process and the messages he hopes to convey through his work. Finally, in true Free Thought Project style, we wrap up the episode with a dose of optimism, offering our listeners a "white pill" - solutions and positive perspectives for building a more principled and free society.

Today's episode is part two of my conversation with Alex Bernardo, host of the Protestant Libertarian Podcast. In this episode, I've asked Alex about three specific things libertarians believe: 1) Libertarians say things like “Taxation is theft.” How is it theft? Aren't taxes the price we pay for living in a civilized society? 2) Drugs hurt people, so why do libertarians want drugs to be legal? 3) Bad people do bad things in other parts of the world. Why shouldn't the US intervene? I also asked Alex about some entry-level resources for anyone interested to hear more about this political and economic philosophy. He mentioned: Alex's Protestant Libertarian Podcast: https://libertarianchristians.com/shows/protestant-libertarian-podcast/ The Libertarian Christian Institute has an extensive collection of articles, podcasts, and other resources to peruse: https://libertarianchristians.com/ Alex also mentioned Reason Magazine, the Mises Institute, and AntiWar.com as other places for gaining a variety of libertarian perspectives on different issues.
A key driver of business value and a successful exit is what we would call a “next level management team". A management team that can take the business to the next few levels of growth.You've heard many times on this podcast that the less central an owner is to the business the more valuable and attractive their business will be to potential buyers. And if an owner is to be less central they need to develop a strong management team.DISCLAIMER: The information in this presentation is provided as education only, with the understanding that neither the presenter nor ENNIS Legacy Partners or GRF CPAs & Advisors is engaged to render legal, accounting, or other professional services.

We've got the latest on Salik reporting its highest Q3 revenue since the toll gates went live. Revenue was up more than 14 per cent, as the number of registered vehicles and revenue generating trips grew. However, Salik net profit for the first nine months fell, despite higher revenue. The company said this was due to changes to the operating structure, which meant it was hard to compare the performance on a like for like basis with last year. Meanwhile, Emirates and FlyDubai ordered more than $60 billion of new planes on Day One of the Dubai Airshow.

Wei Cui shares his journey since graduating from Harvard. He describes it as a 30-year journey, with three phases: first decade, where he continued attending school in the United States, second decade, where he practiced law in New York City and Beijing, and last decade, living in Vancouver teaching at the Law School of the University of British Columbia. This period was the favorite stretch of his life, partly because of having them as part of his life and partly because it was nice to live in a beautiful part of the world and pursue scholarship at a major research university. Wei's life in Vancouver is different from earlier stretches in his career, especially from the years spent in China. He moved to Canada after spending seven and a half years working in China. The journey has been interesting from the perspective of Canada, as it allows him to think about these different parts of his life in the US and in China from the perspective of Canada. Cui's journey began when he was in Harbor College on a student visa in the United States. After deciding to stay in the US, he found a terminal master's program in philosophy at Tufts. He continued to study philosophy in Ph.d programs, then went to law school, where he became interested in China and the idea of law being applicable to China. He eventually graduated from Yale Law School in 2002, worked in New York City for three years, and moved to China in 2006. Working As an Attorney in China Wei worked in China for seven and a half years. He took up an academic position at China's largest law school in Beijing, but the university was disorganized and he had a light teaching load. He took up legal practice part-time at a local Chinese law firm. In 2008, he worked at the China Investment Corporation (CIC), which invested in Blackstone and Morgan Stanley shares. In 2009, he was secunded to CIC and started setting up a tax practice in house. He also worked in consulting with the Chinese government, working extensively on tax policy projects. He left CIC in 2010, but by that point, he decided to focus more on academia. Wei's third decade in China involved working with the Chinese government on tax policy projects. He was sought out for tax law and tax policy advice for seven years until 2013. In his third, Wei focused on research and teaching, focusing on the challenges of pursuing a career outside of China and in North America. He believes that focusing on academic work and pursuing a career outside of China helped him achieve his goals. He also talks about his current teaching role at the University of British Columbia and as an author. Divergent Economic Development Wei discusses various examples of social science scholarship, including the divergence in economic development paths and the study of ancient economic geography. He also discusses the field of philosophy, particularly the study of philosophy of mind and the foundation of self consciousness. The field of evolutionary psychology, specifically the study of cultural evolution, has gained significant attention. Wei's scholarship was broad, focusing on tax law and policy, with a focus on the US and Canada. He mentions that his book on international taxation is driven by US tax policy, with Canada playing a secondary role. China, however, has made no significant contribution to international tax policy. Wei argues that the US is an outlier in terms of its tax system, with a tax revenue to GDP ratio of 27% compared to other OECD countries. This is a significant difference from countries like France and Germany, where the tax to GDP ratio is 40%. He also discusses the unique structure of the US tax system, which is radically different from what most listeners are used to. The US has a relatively low tax rate, especially for the middle class, which is referred to as "middle-class" in the Biden and Obama administrations. In conclusion, Wei Cui's research on tax law and policy highlights the importance of understanding the unique structures and systems of advanced economies. US Tax Revenue Redistribution vs. OECD Countries and China The US does more effective redistribution of tax revenue than other OECD countries, such as France and Germany, which collect their revenue through pensions and payroll taxes. However, the US spends a greater portion of its GDP, distributing to the bottom 50% of the income distribution than these other countries. The US does not have a value-added tax, but rather low rate state sales taxes, which could potentially collect more revenue through a value-added tax. The US is also unusually reliant on personal income tax in collecting revenue, making it easier to afford less complicated tax laws. The US tax law is complicated, with the IRS being thinly staffed and heavily reliant on taxpayers and return preparers for tax compliance. The rule of law is crucial in this system, as it dictates how people should pay taxes and is followed by private parties. In contrast, China invests little in writing tax law and has many tax administrators providing taxpayer services. In China, there is a lot of individual discretion in tax administration, with each tax administrator responsible for different taxpayers and facing revenue targets. This leads to a more predictable and predictable tax collection process. Tax farming is another analogy used to describe the approach in Rome, where private societies auction off the right to collect taxes to private societies, collecting as much money as they want. Tax Compliance and Tax Avoidance across Countries Wei discusses the differences between societies that do not rely on a legal system and those that do. He talks about tax compliance and tax avoidance across countries. In advanced economies, cash collection mostly operates through business firms, which collect corporate income tax, sales tax, VAT, wage payments, interest payments, and creditors. As a result, individual behavior in terms of tax compliance does not matter as a first cut. There is quite a bit of commonality between countries and their modern tax systems, with richer countries having more big business firms to collect taxes for the government. However, there are variations in tax compliance and evasion across countries. For example, in Greece, most taxes are collected by business firms, while in the US, compliance rates for self-employed individuals are substantially lower than those employed by firms. This highlights the need for scholarship to advance and better educate the public about tax collection and evasion. From a tax law perspective, the biggest differences in China and the US are not in tax law but more in their systems of redistribution. Public finance systems define what these countries are like, making them more worthy of discussion. Influential Courses and Professors at Harvard Wei discusses his experiences in college and his connection to liberal political philosophy. He took a John Rawls' course Theory of Justice and other philosophy courses, which he believes continue to resonate with him personally and professionally. Wei's liberal philosophy was heavily influenced by his American experience in the 1990s, which he associates with American ideology. However, he finds it sobering that people do not subscribe to these philosophies and that academics and others who subscribe to them do not make much effort to persuade others of their correctness. Wei's first irreversible awakening was the US invasion of Iraq, which he found morally wrong. He believes that what he learned from professors like John Rawls is partly what is creating a sense of discomfort and reflection about the world 25 years later. In summary, Wei Cui's experiences in college and his journey to China, the US, China, and Canada have shaped his views on morality and politics.

The income tax was established in 1913 with the ratification of the single sentence of the 16th amendment. Tax rules and regulations have undergone many revisions and changes in the 110 years since then, including the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act. One provision of that act, concerning multinational corporations repatriating income, is being challenged in the case Moore v. United States. Oral arguments in that case, which could have far-reaching implications for the tax system, will be heard by the Supreme Court in December. Dan Shaviro of the New York University School of Law, explains the evolution of the income tax system over the past half decade and some of the possible consequences of the Moore decision, including huge revenue losses for the government. Dan is the Wayne Perry Professor of Taxation at NYU. His newest book is 'Bonfires of the American Dream in American Rhetoric, Literature and Film.'

“All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.” United States Constitution, Article I, Section 7 Review the origins and debate over Article I, Section 7 of the United States Constitution, which provides that any bill raising revenue must originate in the House of Representatives. These bills were often referred to as “money bills” and this clause today is often referred to as the “Origination Clause.” This provision addresses the authority of the federal government to tax, as well as to raise revenues and funds from other sources. Article I, Section 7 ensures that taxation and similar means of raising money must first be proposed by the House of Representatives — which is composed of the most immediate representatives of the People. The Origination Clause preserves the keystone of “no taxation without representation.” The Senate has the authority to amend or concur in amendments to such bills, just like any other bill. This ensures the wisdom and experience of the Senate can influence these important matters, without allowing them to cower or coerce the House, and prevents an aristocracy from taking hold.

New Jersey offers numerous property tax relief programs, but the requirements and filing deadlines for each are different, which causes confusion and likely leads to taxpayers leaving money on the table.

Good morning, RVA! It's 54 °F, and, today, summerish temperatures return! Expect highs in the 80s this afternoon and for them to stretch on through next week. Are these record highs? Probably! Am I recovering from a fall cold? Yes! Will I still try to get out into the forest on my bicycle despite probably needing to rest? We'll see! Water cooler Remember last year when the Governor wanted to create permanent tax cuts for the wealthy but didn't have the votes and settled instead for one-time rebates, $200 for individuals and $400 for families? Well, the Department of Taxation has set up a website to check if you're eligible for those rebates (you gotta create an account first), and says the checks should hit your mailbox before December. The Cynical Part of Me raises an eyebrow at the near-election timing of this launch. The Regular Part of Me knows that the General Assembly just passed its budget a hot second ago and casual-sounding things like “setting up a website to check if you're eligible” are actually huge projects for already overworked teams. Looking ahead, and given all the press releases I get from Youngkin's team about the Commonwealth's surging revenue, I'd guess those permanent tax cuts for the wealthy will make a return in this coming year's budget, too. Just another reason why the November 7th election—in just 12 days!—is so very important. Make sure you've got a plan to vote, OK? In other state government news, Ben Paviour at VPM reports on the ongoing mess at the Department of Elections and their decision to remove thousands of folks from the voter rolls. It's hard to tell what's actually going on here, and I'd argue that's probably part of the point. Skip the confusion, and tap straight on through to the Department of Elections website to check your voter registration status right now. Also at VPM, Jahd Khalil writes about Republicans' plans to ban abortion should they win control of the General Assembly next month (see above about voting!). Khalil links to this recent survey by CNU's Wason Center, which asked potential voters a bunch of questions about their Top Issues heading into this election. Tap through and dig into the data, because it's fascinating. While folks support a handful of liberal issues—like keeping abortion legal, teaching kids about racism in public schools, retail marijuana sales, and not banning books—they're basically split on whether they'll vote for a Democrat or a Republican. Pulitzer Prize Winner Michael Paul Williams has more on the survey results, including this bit: “When likely voters were asked who they trusted most to make the right decisions for children in K-12 public schools, 81% of respondents trusted teachers “somewhat” or “a lot” — more so than school administrators (67%), local school boards (59%) and state government (55%). That's right: teachers were deemed more trustworthy than the school boards micromanaging education.” Standard caveats apply about how do surveys even work in a world where no one answers their phone, but still, fascinating! It's not all just state-level elections popping up on ballots, some of us get to vote for local candidates, too. If you're a Henrico resident cast your web browsers back over to the RTD where Sean Jones has put together a nice overview of the 10 candidates running for the Board of Supervisors. Eileen Mellon at Richmond Magazine sat down with Nathan Hughes, a real estate agent who's worked with local restauranteurs for decades, to talk about cursed restaurant spots. Hughes tries to explain that actual things—like location, foot traffic, and layout—probably contribute more to a restaurant's success than fake things like curses. Likely story, Hughes! Reminder: Breakaway RVA will host their final chill, informative, and fun group bike ride tonight. Meet at Scuffletown Park at 5:45 PM, wheels up at 6:00 PM! Tonight, at 6:00 PM, the YWCA host the 27th annual Remember My Name memorial at Cedar Street Baptist Church (2301 Cedar Street). This memorial gives friends, family, and community members a chance to commemorate those who have lost their lives due to domestic violence and intimate partner violence. According to the YWCA, “nearly one-third of all homicides in Virginia are attributed to domestic or intimate partner violence.” You can learn more and register (to help with the headcount) over on the website. This morning's longread Naked beneath Our Clothes I loved this essay on nakedness and bodies and how we're so weird about both. Everyone's got a body, and we've done a lot of really gross societal work to make sure we've all got thoughts on those bodies—the ones that belong to other people, sure, but mostly the one that belongs to us. Seeing other naked bodies, though, did not make me feel disrespectful. It was wondrous. The shared ease made being human more palatable. And I soon realized there is nothing exhibitionist about being naked. People look you in the eye; nobody stares at the rest of you. Nothing is new, shocking, revelatory. All the lumps and bumps, moles and birthmarks, scars and stretch marks are on display, and the need to conceal your own drops away. Nakedness, done right, has no ego. There are problems with exposing the body, of course, but there are also problems in cultures that conceal. The more artfully we cover our bodies, the more mystique there is. But the more mystique there is, the greater the desire to own, steal, guard, or violate that alluring, luring, concealed body. The paradox is built in. If you'd like to suggest a longread to show up here, go chip in a couple bucks on the ol' Patreon. Picture of the Day These mushrooms understand dense housing.
