  • Raising taxes on the rich won't cause them to flee

    Brian Murphy suggests that if the super-rich were taxed more heavily they would move away ("Warren Buffett is wrong," Aug. 25). I don't believe that. California has higher taxes than Oklahoma, yet the super-rich still prefer California to Oklahoma....

    Wall Street antics endanger capitalism
