    There once was a merchant banker
    His lack of policy cause rancour

    yes but on the other hand lots of things rhyme with Rand: "unseen hand", "pay for your own broadband", "SOE disband", "Nats right-hand", "ideological headstand" - the possibilities abound ...

    Well one example if you like is the US federal tax system where marginal rates go up to 33% then drop back to 28% somewhere near $200k+ - their idea is that the 33% hump fills in the lower progressive rates below $100k effectively giving a flat tax for the rich and a progressive one for the poor (er, not so rich) - of course the US has so many tax avoidance boondoggles that this is all kind of moot

    yup - Kyoto is IMHO all about not making it worse - what we really need to start doing is pumping carbon (any carbon) back under the ground - want a radical thought? stop recycling newsprint, start throwing it in landfills, same with plastic bags, don't burn old wood landfill it

    We actually want to raise the value of sequestered carbon to encourage making more of it - this will also raise housing and newsprint costs but it will also encourage people to grow more trees and raise the value of sequestered carbon in the form of houses
