    If I know taxes aren't going to increase, I'm more likely to invest 'cuz I know my investment won't get smacked with an tax increase.

    You might be more prone to invest in low-yield, higher risk type investments, but you are going to keep your savings working in any tax situation.

      If the choice is spend or save, knowledge of a tax hike will influence my decision on what to do with some of my cash.

      Your point, though, is well-taken: most of my funds will be invested, regardless.

      Who, other than the inexperienced, makes such investments? It makes little sense regardless of the prevailing tax rate.

      The fact that tax policy has any bearing upon one's decision to invest/divest is itself a burden upon the process.
