    I've started five businesses in the last 25 years. All software related, all venture capital backed. Some made money. Others didn't. Not once have I EVER encountered an investor that talked about taxes before we got a venture profitable. Then, it was only to move companies out of Philadelphia because of the regressive wage tax.

    My Wharton fiance professors laughed at Reagan statements about taxes and job creation. It's not just a myth, its a self-serving lie by self-centered suburban middle managers hiding in gated villages. Only these idiots can turn short-sighted selfishness into a life creed.

      although, it probably makes a more intriguing story with the typo . . .
