Obama – B.O or B.H.O?

Now that he won his place in the white house, perhaps it’s time to wield his diplomacy and use his middle name – Hussien?

Here’s an interesting piece on Obama’s tax policy. In view of increasing income inequality- the past couple of years have especially seen drastic rise in income disparity – a 4% shoot up in tax on income >$250K doesn’t seem outrageous to me. It doesn’t qualify as socialism.

I’m interested to learn about the impact of his tax plan on Hedge funds and PE firms – considering a raise of 20% in capital gains, making it 35% from 15%.
