I just figured it out: Goldmanintes are 5000 times greater than us. It's like the three-fifths rule.

Anyone who believes humanity can effectively "tackle" poverty and climate change is not aware that two of humanity's afflictions - namely "ignorance" and "want" are eternal afflictions.

Climate change has been, and always will be occuring on this planet, and so to suggest that somehow a tax could modify this phenomenon is quite naive.

Poverty is, and always will be part of humanity.  This has been proven time and again by lottery winners and lawsuit benefactors who were once poor, came into large summs of money and returned to poverty.

Poverty is a condition of circumstances and finally an acceptance or rejection of those circumstances by the mind of the "poor" individual.  I do not believe it would be wise to attempt to control the minds of those we feel are "poor" or living below our own acceptable standards.  We cannot convince or coherce "poor" people to live in any other fashion or quality of life.

The falacious notion that money can somehow lift all of humanity to a level that has been determined to be acceptable by certain entities is as ludicrous as the notion that scientists have a handle on the ever-changing climate of our 4.5 billion year-old earth and that somehow human kind can change the course of our earth's evolution.

What arrogance.

P.S.  I'm still waiting for a time when the weather can be forecast consistently and accurately into the future more than a couple of days.

Fool on!

Wow. I see everybody else around here bashing Goldman all day long; it's nice to see someone's aware of Goldman's greatness, and worthiness to rule the weak.

"Between 3.41pm and 3.57pm yesterday, little more than 24 hours after the Robin Hood tax campaign's high-profile launch, supporters noticed a sudden spike in the number of people rejecting the plan in their online poll. More than 1,700 came from a Goldman-registered server..."

How many people work in Goldman's corporate office?  What if someone sent out a company-wide email proclaiming that Goldman employees should vote against it?
