Re: whereas ...
It is true.
They won't come after you with hellfire missiles, but if you have significant income, certain taxes DO apply to you unless you take action.
I know an entrepeneur that had adquired US citizenship that renounced it (very expensive) in order to stop paying the IRS.
My wife, is an american born citizen, ans is required to pay taxes to the IRS. Not on income (she is below the limit), but if she sells a house, she would be required to pay tax, Boris style (but with way less money).
As for the article, I disagree.
I don't think it is a great idea to create a credit bubble, but at least you would have to admit that if we give credit to companies, we should do the same for individuals. Or ar we their slaves?
