In CEO meeting, Trump promised more tax cuts

Great, but in democracies, voting rights in elections have physical persons, not legal entities like commercial and financial corporations. The CEOs are physical persons and have individual voting rights which are exercised in their private citizen capacity. In democracies and so in elections, majorities win. While, every vote counts, the question of how many votes are behind the tax cuts, is pursuit of the election candidate and issue for his campaign manager.

Turning to the politics of the matter. Benefits to minorities can attract majority support only if they are proven to be for the common good and benefit. Or if are at least beneficial to the confluent individual and collective good and benefit. These extraordinary tax cuts are proven to be for the exclusive benefit of the super wealthy against the detriment of everybody else including the national budget, the economy and the public, systematically undermining fiscal integrity, business competitiveness and market freedom. The same stands for private equity tax breaks. Inequitable subsidies to special interests and unlawful state aid, are the specific drivers of the precarious predicament of economic consolidation and market concentration in the U.S., in Europe and in the international economic and financial system.

In representive democracies (republics) and in free market economic systems, winners in elections are sound economic policies proclaimed by leading individuals and representative minorities acting on behalf of the public and national interest, therefore of the majority interest. In companies’ boards of directors, CEOs act on behalf of the corporate interest. The specification of this interest is matter of business administration, management strategy and policy, according to the resolutions of the board, the articles of incorporation, the bye laws and the regulations for public and private companies.

Finally, tax revenue depends on economic growth. Taxation as fiscal policy is factored in normal and dynamic economic development. Put simply, reasonable fiscal revenue by way of taxation is always affordable and acceptable in expert economics, provided the fiscal expenditure is equally reasonable, incorporating investment in public infrastructure and services. The same equation drives and draws the budget policy. In elections and in politics budget level is negotiable. Republicans traditionally favor lower budgets (revenue and expenditure) spurring business and opportunity. Democrats traditionally favor higher budgets spurring infrastructure and investment. Interchanging corrections, calibrations and variations are in between. In free market economics, regulation is functional and dysfunctional .

South Africa: Unity government deal reached

Truly historic.

Compliments and Cheers to South Africa.

The One and the Many, Singularity and Plurality, Unity and Division, Uniformity and Diversity, Reality and Potentiality, Motion, Variation and Dimension (for theoretical reference)

The individual and the collective interest is of issue in (power) politics. The same subject is configured in the duality of the relation between the one and the many. This relation has been historically divisive particularly in Western philosophy between Platonic rationalism (the one makes the many) and Aristotelian empiricism (the many make the one). Also, in the variety of intellectual forms these two theoretical currents took through the centuries, since the Presocratics.

The relation has been traditionally of issue in political philosophy. Modern science, finally moderates this fundamental division with emerging concepts in philosophy of science (space – time) and specifically in theory of mind (sensor – motor), psychology and logic. These concepts essentially refer to the interchanges and variations of energy, power, motion, dimension, material consolidation and definition (information) in the dynamics of interactions and reproductions (forms and functions, structures and systems, relations, organizations and conditions).

Modern information technology accelerates motion, direction, resolution and high definition of leadership. The technical ascent illuminates and configures the dynamics of relational interchanges and more specifically the legal, political, moral, economic, social and overall technological dimensions of them.

Similar topics are exposed in communication (mathematics and linguistics), entertained in art (musical, visual, representative and performance – Aristotelian) and illustrated in Eastern philosophies (Platonic) with variations in compositions of harmony. Also, in theory of justice in concepts of equity, liberty and law. These theoretical concepts carry fundamental reflections and resolutions in political science, particularly on relational regulation of civil rights of minorities and political powers of majorities in constitutional democracies and in parliamentary republics.
