    Personal income taxes here in the U.S. are about the lowest in developed countries. In many countries, the typical personal income tax exceeds 50% and their economies are doing just fine.

    I'm necessarily advocating higher personal income tax rates. I'm simply pointing out that they don't necessarily kill the economy.
