The rate of taxation is such that it acts as a deterrent to continuing to work.

. . .

I'll just say what I said earlier - until there is a 100% tax, I have not been encouraged yet to be less productive.

Yeah, I have a hard time buying that taxation "cause" too. Maybe it's because I remember when the top rate was more than double what it is today, and somehow people found the motivation to press on.

I think the motivation for cutting back is usually "I have enough." Each of us has a unique definition of enough, and it includes a lot of things besides assets.
