America already immorally favors investors with our tax laws.
Just like consumers have a choice of which businesses to buy from, businesses have a choice for which jurisdiction to build their assets in. I don’t see why you’d be fine with market forces driving the former but not the latter.
I’ll admit that I don’t have a good sense for the % of Americans who do vs do not have retirement savings / investments. I did think it was much higher than 52%.
I never claimed that this would benefit poor people who don’t have investments — that’s clearly not the case...
“So our expectation should be that we will continue to increase our dividend and our share buybacks next year and the year after that and the year after that.”
I fail to see where they’re advocating for a radical curb to immigration. Seems they want to reallocate the lottery slots to skills-based and family reunification-based immigration — which doesn’t strike me as a bad idea

implement a merit-based system for immigrants coming to this country. That sounds like a nice idea, but in practice such a system would give priority to potential immigrants from wealthy, educated, English-speaking countries. Which means white immigrants.
If you have the audacity to try and exist in the United States without the right piece of paper
Switching to a merit or points-based system can go a long way in assuaging common nativist/racist fears about immigration (they’re stealing jobs, leeching off the system, etc.)
Opposing unauthorized immigration doesn’t make somebody a racist against whichever group make up the bulk of unauthorized immigrants in their country when that composition is driven by factors that have nothing to do with race.
