Right. So a 78% real marginal rate over is totally reasonable, as long as you can break free of the whole myth of Reaganomics.

Corporate taxes are kind of tricky, especially since it's a lot easier for a corporation to relocate to a tax haven than it is for a human. And, if you're thinking of targeting high marginal incomes, it's also a lot easier to split up a corporation into a bunch of smaller-earning chunks. So humans are probably a better target.

Capital gains.... Yeah. I mean, I think that the AMT (if set high enough) would effectively work around those. I can certainly understand why you might want to tax capital gains at a beneficial rate for lower-income earners--encouraging saving, home ownership, etc. But, really, if you're making $50 million in a year, do we really need to encourage investing that money? It's not like there's anything else to do with it.
