Health cannot be a question of income; it is a fundamental human right.
Women's greater social desirability and beauty power afford opportunities for creating both measurable and invisible income. While the opportunities are available to almost all women and some men, they are available in abundance to the genetic celebrity ... a woman so beautiful that men do more than look and talk--they follow her.warren farrell
Idiots are always in favour of inequality of income (their only chance of eminence), and the really great in favour of equality.George Bernard Shaw
There are few sorrows, however poignant, in which a good income is of no avail.Logan Pearsall Smith
The hardest thing in the world to understand is income taxes.Albert Einstein
It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.oscar wilde
The actual participants in industry under individualism are prompted to action by the following combination of incentives: desire for an income, desire for a higher income, desire for security, satisfaction received from shouldering responsibility or from wielding power, the joy of participation in creative activity, and the desire for applause and prestige. ...And all these motivations may be conserved and strengthened under socialism.
A social order in which the maximum legal income is not more than tenfold the minimum... and in which competition for private profit has been eliminated, and in which social motivations are more dominant, is certain to be a more harmonious community than can ever be created by economic individualism.
Expenditure rises to meet income.
If there is any law governing the distribution of income between classes, it still remains to be discovered.joan robinson
I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart.saki
I like to say I'm more conservative than Goldwater. He just wanted to turn the clock back to when there was no income tax. I want to turn the clock back to when people lived in small villages and took care of each other.Pete Seeger
Unless the fundamental categories of economics such as ‘property’ were to be redefined in a radically personal way the liberal rationalist curse which had established economics as a scientific discipline cut off from human interests would proliferate. Economic models … have failed to incorporate any meaningful index of individual benefit other than the original utilitarian one, … the index of increasing income or an increasing flow of commodities.john carroll
The best measure of a man's honesty isn't his income tax return. It's the zero adjust on his bathroom scale.arthur c. clarke
One of these is an increasing awareness of the benefits to our economy, particularly in terms of investment and enterprise, both local and from overseas, of not having the inquisitorial type of tax system inevitably associated with a full income tax. Another is that even I, who have always believed in the vigour of our economy under our present tax regime, have been surprised by the growth of revenue generated at our present tax rates.john james cowperthwaite
The net worth of the 358 richest people in the world was then found to be 'equal to the combined income of the poorest 45 per cent of the worlds population - 2.3 billion people.'david harvey
If this is the degree of inflation planned for in advance, the real outcome is indeed likely to be such that most of those who will retire at the end of the century will be dependent on the charity of the younger generation. And ultimately not morals but the fact that the young supply the police and the army will decide the issue: concentration camps for the aged unable to maintain themselves are likely to be the fate of an old generation whose income is entirely dependent on coercing the young.friedrich hayek
Making the rich poorer does not make the poor richer, but it does make the state stronger and it does increase the power of officials and politicians, power more menacing, more permanent and less useful than market power within the rule of law. Inequality of income can only be eliminated at the cost of freedom. The pursuit of income equality will turn this country into a totalitarian slum.keith joseph
WEALTH. Any income that is at least $100 more a year than the income of one's wife's sister's husband.h. l. mencken
It is a mere illusion that, above a certain income, the personal desires will be satisfied and leave a wider margin for the generous impulse.Robert Louis Stevenson
One of the most significant results of the industrial struggle during the past fifty years has been the creation of a condition of a vast inequality of wealth and income. This inequality is so extreme that it now constitutes one of the chief sources of bitterness and strife in modern life. ...not that the poor have been getting poorer but that the number and sizes of great fortunes have increased enormously.
If the Nation is living within its income, its credit is good. If, in some crises, it lives beyond its income for a year or two, it can usually borrow temporarily at reasonable rates. But if, like a spendthrift, it throws discretion to the winds, and is willing to make no sacrifice at all in spending; if it extends its taxing to the limit of the people's power to pay and continues to pile up deficits, then it is on the road to bankruptcy.
Many Bangladeshis are travelling abroad, taking holidays abroad. They are being exposed to how people in neighbouring countries live, what kind of clothes they wear... The increase in their expectations and growth in disposable income will create a situation and market for foreign branded items to come in here.
If there is any law governing the distribution of income between classes, it still remains to be discovered.
The fact of it is that all of us agreed to save 6d. in the income Tax by breaking up the Army in peace-time and not having it prepared when war broke out...I will never be a party to it again.Ernest Bevin
