In honor of the other thread, I would like to ask a couple of questions and see where it takes us.
So let's say that the top 1% income earners in this country decided to follow "John Galt" and remove themselves and their "wealth" to a large ranch somewhere in the Rockies. Like the book, a complete cut-off from all of society, vanished.
What would happen to the country's economy?
What would happen to the 1%ers?
