It’s fashionable these days, especially in my industry, to style oneself as “socially liberal but fiscally conservative.” I might be one of the only hedge fund managers out there who claims the opposite. I tend to be to the right socially, but downright Krugman-esque when it comes to many fiscal issues. I’m passionately pro-immigration. I believe we should have government-funded healthcare. And I want more public spending on infrastructure and education.
I’ll also readily admit that wealthy individuals like me are under-taxed in this country. Businesses are another matter, though. Corporations are not people, and we shouldn’t be taxing them like they are.
