    Thread Starter: Matt Collins

    It takes a while to get there, but the premise of this series is ripping off the central banks who are ripping us off. The show has its ups and its downs, but I would recommend if you want to kill some time and want some thought provoking entertainment:

    So schwab is going fee-free on most transactions starting next week, TDAmeritrade announced the same immediately after, followed by E-trade. What do you all think about that? Is it a race to the bottom? Is it a desperate attempt to get ahold of equity before a market collapse? A need to increase liquidity? An attempt to stifle startups like robinhood? Or just the free market at work?

    This fall the Indians on a remote reservation asked their new Chief Oyarde if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.

"It's going to be a very cold winter." So just to be on the safe side, Oyarde told his tribe that the...

    The question is not about taxation in general but the specific case of "progressive" income taxation. If you assume some taxation is necessary do you think it's more moral to have the same rate for everyone or is it better to have a few bear the majority of the burden?
