The Deficit And The Taxes

Today I was alerted to an interesting read in the New York Times, where Warren Buffet asked for higher taxes. Now this guy isn't exactly known for wasting money, and probably has good reasons for asking for a tax increase (not decrease). Incidentally, someone else also alerted me to the "budget puzzle" in that same newspaper, which I find quite interesting, although also very much limited. I wanted to share my results, and invite you to comment. And please, if you have something like this for Germany, I'm very much interested in that, too!
