    Roland, Please explain something to me.

    Let's say I own a business. Current demand doesn't warrant that I hire additional workers. I just don't need them. This has noting to do with my tax rate.

    Let say that the economy improves and demand now warrants that I hire additional workers to meet the demand. I'm going to hire additional workers to meet the demand. Regardless of my tax rates.

    If I hire additional workers, it comes off my bottom line and is not taxed. If instead, I just pocket the money that I would have used to hire additional workers, I will be taxed for it. Isn't it then a tax incentive to me to invest in hiring workers rather than just pocketing the money?

    What am I missing here?
