If business’s are required to honestly report financial information,
and some assets and liabilities are not clearly included,
could some contrived inaccuracies violate the spirit of law?
Why would those controlling information dissemination
want to promote political candidates proposing tougher accounting enforcement,
military industrial accountability, high income and corporate taxation,
campaign finance reform and healthcare cutbacks?
What could happen to some elected officials
who vote to eliminate the real estate mortgage deduction?
When buying and selling are controlled by legislation,
the first thing to be bought and sold are legislators.
P. J. O'Rourke
Are taxpayers encouraged to over-consume
when capital is easily borrowed and/or expenditure deductible?
