But beyond a certain point, you destroy any reason to *become* rich.

When being rich is outlawed, only outlaws will be rich. :-)

That's why tax cuts improve government revenue- up to a certain point. If
tax cuts were the primary answer, then it should be possible to raise
government income to infinity with a tax rate of zero. The converse, of
course, is that tax increases will eventually result in a decrease in
revenue, as folks stop doing the things to generate revenue, and get better
at hiding it.
