Bezos, Musk, Zuckerberg = Steuerschlümpfe

Bezos, Musk, Zuckerberg Steuern sparen auf Kosten der Bildung
Bei diesem Beitrag handelt es sich um ein Blog aus der Freitag-Community

Also noch einmal:
Der Historiker Rutger Bregman sagte zu dem Thema:
"all these stupid philanthropy schemes” and suggested such billionaire-funded giving amounted to tax avoidance that exacerbates the problems it seeks to tackle.
“It feels like I’m at a firefighters conference and NO one’s allowed to speak about WATER,” Bregman said. “Just stop talking about philanthropy and start talking about taxes.”
Ja taxes, Steuern auf gut Deutsch"

Warum hat Trump die Wahl gewonnen? Was hat das mit dem Thema zu tun? Eine ganze Menge:

Man schätzt das 2018 über "US $ 400 Billion" = 400 Milliarden Dollar US auf gut Deutsch gesagt in die Charitable Contribution Deductions reingegangen sind.

Jetzt kommt die American Federation of Teachers = AFT um die Ecke geschossen:

Our budgets reflect our values, so investing in our students and our communities is about choices,” says AFT Washington President Karen Strickland.

Hmmm…
Dazu noch ein ganz anderes Info:
https://www.vox.com/2015/3/25/8284637/school-spending-US

The United States has one of the highest child poverty rates in the developed world — five times higher than Finland's. The money Finland spends to close that gap doesn't show up in the school spending numbers.

UUUPS

Ich lasse da mal Zuckerberg, Musk, Bezos etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. außen vor, um das zu recherchieren müsste man mich schon bezahlen, ich lasse jetzt Bill und Melinda selber sprechen:

https://www.gatesfoundation.org/Who-We-Are/General-Information/Foundation-FAQ

...„Q. Do Bill and Melinda get tax breaks for their donations to the foundation?

A. Many individuals enjoy tax benefits as a result of making charitable contributions. The amount of tax savings received depends on both the size of the charitable contributions and the person's annual income.
Bill and Melinda have been exceptionally generous in making contributions to the foundation, donating sums much larger than their annual incomes. As a result, the tax savings they receive from these contributions represent a very small percentage of the contributions.
From 1994 through 2018, Bill and Melinda gave the foundation more than $36.0 billion. Those donations resulted in a tax savings of approximately 11% of the contributions they made over that time“…

Aha, 36 Milliarden Dollar US, Ups, 11%, Moment, Taschenrechner raus holen =
396 Millionen $ US in 24 Jahren.

Dazu nur mal die oben geschätzten 400 Milliarden Dollar US 2018 = x 11% =
44 Milliarden nur 2018 „charities“ …
Doppel – UUPPPS

Was hat das jetzt mit der Trump – Wahl zu tun?
Nun gut, der ein oder andere nicht zu spät – Geborene kann sich evtl. noch an den Lehmann – Crash erinnern, Ja? Das war 2008.
Jetzt schauen wir uns mal nur als Beispiel die Wahlzahlen 2016 in Oklahoma an:

https://www.nytimes.com/elections/2016/results/oklahoma-president-clinton-trump

Oklahoma Presidential Race
Results: Donald J. Trump Wins

Donald J. Trump Republican 949,136 65.3% 7
Hillary Clinton Democrat 420,375 28.9 —
Gary Johnson Libertarian 83,481 5.7

Stolze 65,3% für Trump, WOOOW, komische Zahlen da oben, nicht wahr? Gerrymandering? Egal, 949 000 Stimmen sind eindeutig.

Jetzt also noch mal zum Bankencrash bzw. Lehmanpleite 2008, na? Neugierig?

https://www.tulsaworld.com/news/local/education/oklahoma-still-leads-nation-in-state-funding-cuts-to-education-since-recession/article_b272238c-6fd2-5332-a6b5-1667453f079d.html

...“Oklahoma still leads nation in state funding cuts to education since recession“…

Und weiter:

...“Oct. 16. 2014“…

Und weiter:

...“A new report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities shows state aid to Oklahoma’s public schools is 23.6 percent lower for the current fiscal year than it was in 2008 — and that the margin between Oklahoma and the second-worst state has grown in the last year“…

= 949,136 Stimmen bzw. 65.3% für Trump.

Ja, ich weiss was jetzt kommt.

:D
