    Actually, investment decisions often have absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing, to do with marginal tax rates on personal income, capital returns tax rates, or the size of the difference between the two. Investment decisions have to do with market conditions being favorable or unfavorable to a profitable idea. Period. Business tax rates, licensing fees, etc. might factor into the decision at the margins, but really, the decision to invest in something or start a new business depends more on sustainable demand for the good or service you plan to provide. The rest is something you bitch about after your investment or business has succeeded for awhile...
