Occluded Front

Death
will come
to all who
pay their taxes.
The love of money
only creates
a deadly
fiscal
drag.


Fiscal drag in economics is the process by which, during inflation, rising incomes draw people into higher tax brackets, so that their real incomes may fall; this acts as restraint  (death) to the expansion of the economy.

    Thanks, Sara, didn't know it had been judged. I wrote a long piece on eye doctors and then ditched that one. It was difficult to understand the prompt. appreciate the comment.
