“In the end, commerce is the salvation of the poor, not charity. Successful risk takers put Americans, immigrants, and offshore workers to work, not government handouts. Increases in government expenditures that threaten risk takers with higher taxes won’t put them back to work, at least not permanently. That merely hampers our transition to a sustainable economy by slowing the accumulation of equity and discouraging risk taking.”
