Over the second quarter of the year, local and global economies faced an onslaught of challenges. The immediate response to the COVID-19 pandemic, for many businesses across the world, and in the UAE in particular, was to batten down the hatches, and cut any extras costs. This manifested in job cuts, salary cuts, suppliers unpaid, rents and assets unpaid, and more; all of which, while conserving short-term cashflow, may also have set one’s business up for later problems. 



The knock-on impact on the market was not positive, and the rapidity with which everything happened left most people scrambling to catch up. Nobody could have foreseen the entire lockdown, the abrupt loss of cashflow, or the contraction of business early enough to have prepared adequately for it.

A constitutional amendment is up for a vote this fall in Illinois. It would change the state’s income tax from a flat income tax to a graduated income tax.

MOLINE, Ill. — Illinoisans have a constitutional amendment on their ballots this fall. It’s a change to the tax law found within the state’s constitution. The question: should Illinois change from a flat income tax to a graduated income tax?

Right now, Illinois uses a flat tax, meaning everyone in the state pays the same tax rate at 4.95 percent. It doesn’t matter if you make $10,000 a year or $10 million a year; everyone pays the same rate.

A Graduated Income Tax

Governor JB Pritzker and the coalition “Say Yes to Fairness” are pushing for a change. They want what’s called a graduated income tax. This would allow Illinois lawmakers to tax different income

The differential impacts of the pandemic and its lockdowns are now unmistakable. Originally, the pandemic, lockdowns and recession so closely overlapped that it was possible to mistake cause for effect. Only as they have extended and altered, has the true relationship become distinguishable: The lockdowns’ have had the greater economic effect. 

Illusions rest on compelling simplicity. The coronavirus and recession relationship is no exception. Today’s pandemic is the greatest in 100 years, and the unexpected economic collapse is the greatest in over 90. Unquestionably joined, the two had to be cause and effect. 

As tempting as this circumstantial evidence is, there is a superficiality to this logic. After all, going to the theater did not kill Abraham Lincoln; being shot did.   

The current pandemic’s biggest canard is that coronavirus killed America’s economy. Such shorthand explanation leaves out the lockdowns’ decisive role. With sufficient time having elapsed, and the ebb and
