  1. Anyone can profit from their own labour, but not by exploiting other people (or nations). There are also windfall profits.

    So if per capita GDP growth is x%, this is a reasonable level of profits.

    Windfall profits are not available in the long-run.

    Any long-run profits over x% are super profits.

  2. Say the economy is growing at 6%. You define super profits as anything over 6% and slap a tax on it. As a consequence growth slips to 3% so you tax profits harder. Soon growth is at 0% and all profit is a crime. Way to go socialist.

  3. TerjeP :
    So which is it:-
    x = 0
    x = 5
    x = 32.7

    Gee-sus! don’t be a slow learner.

    If I say:

    “if per capita GDP growth is x%”

    then, obviously;

    x = (per capita growth).

    All this 0; 5, 32.7 is nonsense.

  4. Chris – yes I failed to comprehend what you were saying at first. Now I’ve comprehended it I think it is crazy, as per my comment after the one you quoted.
