    Opening an article with a hypothetical tax reform of Winston Churchill is very polemic. Millions of Americans lost their homes because they were stupid enough to believe in or even trust financial products invented by greedy elites of a weak system which unfortunately developed from a basis for realizing the capitalist dream, into a sick nightmare. Hopefully capitalism will get healthy again. It is not the gouvernment which is responsible for the current job market situation. It is sad enough that General Motors and various Banks had to be "socialized". It is great to see progress. GM will go public again and some Banks are already profitable as well.
