We give to you, you give to us

Do you know anyone who gives art-of-the-deal advice to Donald Trump?

Can a capitalist government be more capitalist? How? Don’t pass the one-time available upfront legislative chance to make a desirable tit-for-tat trade. Make all corporate America (past and future) give something in return for a desired 15-20 percent tax reduction. I suggest 2 percent of their corporate stock as a fair trade. That’s 2 percent of $25 trillion. Put that stock in an untouchable separate unmanaged fund where government can’t buy or sell stock, only get tax-free dividends. We’ll give to you — you give to us. Skin-in-the-game shareholders. Reduction of debt.
