Meaningless biz word; you don't know the circumstances of everyone on welfare, you have literally no idea. Stop believing lies about inherent inferiority/superiority, we're all basically the same.

I'm assuming you inherited it from your parents and in that case it's bullshit that your parents worked all of their lives to have their gift to you stolen from by the government. Welfare really exists to buy votes from the poor and to keep people dependent on the government. If social security was privatized it would collapse immediately as it's a blatant ponzy scheme that has only existed for so long because people have been forced to buy into it. 401ks have certain restrictions on taking out money and what investment vehicles are available to you so there wouldn't be an exact free market version of a 401k like that since a major thing that separates a 401k from buying some long term CDs every month is the unique rules, penalties and restrictions of investment options. The closest thing to a private sector version of food stamps would be a food bank and other charitable organizations. Instead of medicare we would have insurance that would be far more affordable without the government subsidizing insurance which gives less of an incentive to not jack up prices for medicine.

Aw, poor OP... Getting $2 million just because you exist must be rough.

The very first thing I would have done if I got $2 million just given to me was consult some people and look up some state laws about the taxes. I've won a $5,000+ lottery ticket before and I was taxed 29%. I planned accordingly because I knew ahead of time exactly what they were going to take.

>Forgot to account for the $36.00 I owed to the city for something

Also, the welfare system is shit. It has good intentions but it's fundamentally flawed and far too easy to get access to. There's nothing wrong with using a tax system to help people that truly are in need but unfortunately, the system's laws are so loose, a lot of people and low lives take advantage of it.

Op I don't know why all these poor fags are upset because you have an easy life and they don't. Whoever left you that money did in fact work hard for it. Yes, it's unfortunate that there wasn't more planning done to doge the tax, it hurts to be lazy, but that shouldn't be a requirement to leave behind money to people you love.

Also we should definitely privitize social security. Anyone on this board who thinks otherwise needs to leave. Just think of how much you could grow that money, versus receiveing some paltry amount after inflation has eaten most of it away. Plus, I can't live long enough to even get back what I'll pay into the system. It doesn't work because its broken, you don't need to keep trying to reform it, just remove it.

It keeps those on the bottom just happy enough to not go out and murder the rich.

Those making the big bucks do better on social security and medicare taxes because they only count the fist 117k or so of income.

Example
>make 100k
>taxed at ~25% plus 7% for social security and medicare
>take home 68k with a 32% effective rate
>make 250k
>taxed at ~30% plus 7% on 117k
>take home 183k with a 27% effective rate

Only an idiot will make that much without deductions that knock their effective income down a tax bracket or 2.

Be glad you can take 1.2 million home and invest it rather than slowly losing your 2 million paying for private security

Oh and no, don't think I'm one of those unfortunate people u talk about, never been, but I've seen my parents work themselves into an early grave just so me and my siblings could go through uni, and i've worked basically everyday since I was 16, I've met a lot of ppl in dire situations taking the scraps the government gave them or being taken advantage of by greedy fuck face bosses.
Everything I have I earned it, I've been up and I've been down, I've considered filling for government help, do you even know how it feels to have no one to turn too? Do you know how it feels to not know where your next meal is gonna come from?

> what would happen if we privatized social services

Same thing that happens when we privatize everything else. The businesses would need to grow revenue and decrease operating costs.

Which is great if you're a car or tshirt company and terrible if you're a hospital/health network or prison.

***
OP I used to work for a social services agency. I'm in the private sector as a BI engineer now. But I worked for them during the big "Welfare to Work" paradigm shift when millions of non working non parents were thrown off welfare.

Feel free to ask me questions if you want.

The tl;dr version is that there's no such thing as "welfare" anymore, that what was known as "welfare" is only for parents now, that it's hard to get, hard to keep, and only lasts 5 years.
>>
>>976981
I've worked for the government too. What I saw when private contractors came in was total Twilight Zone. If it was done well and relatively cheaply before, it was a ludicrously expensive clusterfuck after. The only part of "cheap" in privatization is the quality of the good or service provided to the taxpayer. The companies bring in dangerously incompetent H1Bs and bill them out as if they were top tier Microsoft engineers. So they leave a smoldering crater in their wake that nobody will do anything about because they must save face. Plus, for Republicans, every time "government" fails, there's another opportunity for the private sector to destroy something else and make a killing in the process.

One of my family members works for government contractors. The only reason they got their current contract was because they massively undercut everyone else. The only reason they were able to afford undercutting everyone else was because they fired around 20% of their workforce (management was untouched, they only got rid of the people at the bottom) and told the rest of their workers to work harder for no additional pay or compensation.

That was a few months ago. Now they have a bunch of lawsuits coming in because they don't have enough workers to get the work done on time, so all the money they saved by firing their workers is going right down the toilet.

That's my vaguely related blog post I hope everyone enjoyed it.

Most of welfare is worthless. The bottom 10% of earners work 10 hours a week on average, they're poor because they're lazy. Sadly the Marxist thought that "PEOPLE ARE POOR BCUZ OF THE SYSTEM" has crept into the mainstream. Did you know 11% of people in the bottom 5% of income will end up becoming rich by the time they retire? It was much higher when taxes were lower.

> "most of welfare is worthless"

Nice sentence too bad it doesn't work.

Also it's wrong. There is no such thing as "welfare" anymore. Welfare was eliminated in 1996. Now it's just a buzzword, it's loosely defined slang meant to describe everything from TANF cash assistance (which used to be called welfare but was for everyone and now it's only for parents and only lasts 5 years and is just 2-3% of the federal budget), to student loans (which get paid back) to social security (which was paid for by employees).

Some of the right wing think tanks that post stats about "welfare" in the budget even consider veterans benefits as part of social services.

Which is funny because they're paid for by the defense budget. So technically they're calculating it twice.
>>
>>976241

i have no qualms with people on welfare and people who NEED it (i.e. born disabilities)
what i do have qualms with is this meaningless transferal of wealth which doesn't make anyone's lives better. the tax dollar you pay may go into welfare, but after it has gone through the bureaucratic hellhole that is the American government, I hardly believe it hits the poor with the strength of a full dollar. besides that, welfare is not a good system. why would you want to throw your money into a hole? you know food stamps are redeemable at mcdonalds? you know your government practically subsidizes single motherhood?

plus what's wrong with generational wealth you ass hat? generational wealth is what creates college educated workers and at its best promotes social responsibility (but definitely NOT when that responsibility is given to the government)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4u1J6EEhkyM
>>
Look up the federal budget, and you'll see that, not counting social security, about 1/3 is spent on social programs, 1/3 on defense, and 1/3 on everything else the federal government does (FDA, DOE, etc.).

Also, you didn't "earn" that money. You happened to pop out of the right vagina. Even then, 1 million dollars is a massive head start and puts you in a position to accrue hefty sums of wealth over the next 20 years.

Social programs are important because it keeps poor people from being desperate. When people get desperate, they get violent, which is fun for nobody.

so you are all telling me the government is supposed to act as a bulldozer? to level the playing field? o boy wew lad mate

the point is the government has become this deep dark hole where we throw 1 days worth of wages a week now and now we are expected to give it most of our estate after we die. so what if we want to give our kids a better shot. assuming you used your talents to maintain or even earn your estate maybe, not a guarantee, but maybe those traits passed on to your children. who's to say they can't do something better with the cash. and why do you want to mitigate that effect by sending any fraction to a fucking life sucking, self-perpetuating, ineffective, self-fulfilling prophecy that is the current liberal american government as it is right now?

Inheritance tax is the most retarded thing in existence.

>I own the fruits of my labor.
In the context of modern Western society, and in some cases, sure. Though, I find it interesting that you'd use that as an argument in a thread about inheritance. So you own the fruits of your parents' labour? And their parents' labour? And their parents' parents labour? That distant aunt that you've never met? You own that too?
>Meaning what, in non-gibberish?
That, where individuals are allowed to own resources, land, and, hilariously, ideas, inequality is inevitable. Inequality (in terms of access to resources) is a construct that exists in the context of ownership. It's a state of mind. It's a spook within a spook.
>If your morals stop at "right of might", yes. In all other cases, no.
Ah, okay then, thank you for your wisdom, I'm sure you thoroughly considered every moral position before rejecting them as incompatible in this context.

Where inequality exists to the extent that you spend your childhood near starving, not because there are enough resources to go around, but because people who 'own' the resources refuse to provide you with access to the resources because it is 'theirs', which of the following acts do you suppose is more immoral and why?

> food stamps at mcdonalds
holy shit I was about to reply lol nope, but its totally doable in some stores. the point is if you price it out by gram its one of the most expensive purchases you could make, worse if you count nutrient density. Calorie wise however at least according to freakonomics its some of the cheapest food available.

There are 2 kinds of laziness. Laziness in action and Laziness in thought.
If you don't do the remuneration calculation up front. You're going to get screwed.
Sorting trash into recyclables is not a high leverage activities. Its limited by trash, and quality of trash. Decent Margin off shitty revenue is a bad play, every time.

Apparently you don't know that funding trusts uses the same estate tax exemption as gifts from your estate. You can't use trusts to pass wealth to your heirs in circumvention of the estate tax rules.

Before calling someone "not sophisticated" maybe you could get some basic financial knowledge? Or just leave the board.

>The justification for a rule is the fact that it exists.

Just how fucking retarded are you?

His parents probably paid income taxes over it since it's a relative small amount. They then proceeded to pay capital gains taxes on the sum. When they died the state took half of it. And now every time this guy wants to buy something he has to pay VAT.

Let me give you an example with Dutch tax rates. Let's say I'm an auditor working for a big five company and I make 200.000EUR bruto.

The first thing that happens is that over the first 57.585 EUR I pay 23,094 in taxes. Over the rest, which is 142,415, is taxed at 52% which is 74,055. So my total income tax over 200,000 EUR was 97,150. Because of my high income, my health insurance becomes more expensive. I put the 102,850 in a savings account with the biggest bank in The Netherlands. This nets me 0.5% interest due to government monetary policy. HOWEVER, I have to pay 30% tax on a fictive rate of 4%. So in effect, I will lose 0.7% of my money in nominal terms PER YEAR. If you factor in inflation it becomes truly disgusting.

Now let's look at spending. Most items have 21% VAT with the exception of gasoline, cigarettes, coffee, soda and alcohol, which have additional taxes.

The average tax rate from labor to a product without additional taxes would be 57.5%, my marginal tax rate is 60,3%. But it does not end here.

You realize inheritance tax only kicks in above $2mil in the USA right - anything up to $2mm is tax free

I made the glaring mistake to purchase an apartment in Amsterdam. This set me back 330,000. Each year I have the pleasure to pay 0.056% or 1,848 and some additional city taxes of around 500 EUR combined. Using the fictive rate over which I'm paying capital gains tax my apartment costs me 15,548 a year in total.

My neighbor's apartment is identical to mine. It is the same size and it's on the same floor. He refuses to work and collects benefits. As a result he can rent his apartment for 540 a month. Op top of his unemployment benefits, he also gets 203 a month to help him pay his rent. Which means that his costs for having the same apartment as me are 337 a month or 4,044 a year.

Now, I'm paying a marginal tax rate upwards of 60% so that people like my neighbor can live for next to nothing and complain all day that things should be more fair and more social and how I am such a greedy rich pig. I cannot wait until I get to leave this fucking shithole, two more years! I hope this country burns.

I think this right here is a good explanation as to why socialized care doesn't work in the long run. As long as there is somewhere else to go where you can see the benefits of your work, those who want to work will leave. Not like some Randian utopia or something stupid, but flight to quality is a real thing and it's a large part of why so many nations are shooting themselves in the foot. Socialized care is a real need for some, and a major drain for others. The trick is finding the right balance, and most governments go too far into the 'take care of the population because votes' realm.

It's funny how you complain about the "lowest denominator" yet compare everyone who gets assistance to the worst of the worst. I doubt that even the majority of blacks are on it permanently, if they are. In fact, looking at >>976606, they aren't, even if they they have the highest percent of recipients.

TL;DR - if you don't take a very serious approach to how to wisely invest this money, you WILL lose it all.

My friend works at Goldman Sachs and he said the safest way to invest that money is literally a Vanguard index. If you have an 8% annual return on $1 million, that's $80,000/year for doing NOTHING, for LIFE. That's enough money to literally do whatever the fuck you want for your career. Painter, geologist, radiologist, one of those fucking psychos who sits in a helicopter over the remote roadless lands of northeast Canada and shoots rare deer with a sniper rifle, whatever the fuck you want bro.

I would take a solid 2-3 months JUST learning about investing. Meet people who are finance experts (corporate professionals, day traders, college professors), read finance books, take some online finance courses via M.I.T. OpenCourseWare, gather as much information as possible before making a decision.

I'm calling fake. Estate tax on inheritances only apply to inheritances over $5.4m (or an amount close to that, don't remember it exactly)
