    •  Yes, the 'carried interest' tax dodge ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... is just a tax dodge that people who make money playing with other people's money pay a much lower rate than people who make money providing other services to people.

      IOW, "I will help feed you", "I will help keep you alive", one rate ... "I will help you play with your money", a second, much lower rate makes no economic sense at all.
