This is such a nice way of explaining how uncompetitive tax rates can lead to successful people and businesses, who both contribute massively in taxes, to leave the country/state when conditions no longer suit them. For a country to grow and be successful, it has no option but to choose low tax rates, and from a libertarian perspective, a flat tax.
