Would A US Wealth Tax Push Millionaires To Bitcoin Adoption?
There are ways in which a tax on the ultra-wealthy could nudge them toward crypto, but hiding assets is not one of them. Would A US Wealth Tax Push Millionaires To Bitcoin Adoption?
Levying a progressive tax on the ultra-wealthy has been a talking point long popular with many United States Democrats, yet such a policy would have been unimaginable under a Republican administration and a split Congress.
Now that the Democratic Party is back in control of both the White House and Capitol Hill, the initiative is formally on the table: On March 1, a group of Democratic lawmakers led by Sen. Elizabeth Warren introduced legislation proposing an annual tax on the households and trusts worth more than $50 million, including the value of assets such as real estate and stocks.
As new bridges between traditional capital and the digital asset space emerge almost daily, high-net-worth individuals can move value to crypto with more ease than ever before. Would a prospective wealth tax, should it be codified in law, affect their willingness to do so?
Marketed as the Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act, Sen. Warren’s bill proposes a 2% annual tax on the net worth of any household between $50 million and $1 billion, and a 3% tax for those worth more than $1 billion. The framers contend that the burden will only fall on the wealthiest 100,000 households in the nation, or the top 0.05% of wealth distribution.
The lawmakers argue that the initiative could bring in at least $3 trillion in federal revenue over 10 years — a pool of resources that could be directed to support underfunded areas such as education, childcare and infrastructure.
The proposed legislation would have to clear the U.S. Senate before it becomes law. Even though Democrats and Republicans are currently tied 50-50 in the chamber, with the Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris holding a tie-breaking vote, most bills still take at least 60 votes for approval. As Bloomberg noted, Democrats are at least hoping to append some elements of the tax to the budget bill that will be reconciled later in the year.
It doesn’t come as unexpected that the initiative received immediate scolding from the political right and center, along with big business circles. In the weeks after the proposal went public, the Wall Street Journal ran several op-eds arguing that the wealth tax would bring more harm than good.
One argued that a wealth tax for American millionaires and billionaires would affect the ownership landscape in the U.S. stock market: As big U.S. investors would be pressured to sell their most liquid assets at a discount, their counterparts from tax-free jurisdictions would be happy to buy in.
The author of another contended that the outflow of capital from the stock market resulting from taxation of the ultra-wealthy would diminish the value of everyone’s savings.
Billionaire Leon Cooperman told CNBC that while he believes that rich people should pay more taxes, Warren’s configuration of the policy “has no merit.” He added: “If the wealth tax passes, go out and buy yourself some gold because people are going to rush to find ways of hiding their wealth.”
Wait, But Could That Gold Be Digital?
Not A Place To Hide
Granted, Cooperman’s quip about using gold to hide one’s net worth is metaphorical, a reference to the kinds of assets that can be less visible to the government’s eye compared with those sitting in bank and brokerage accounts.
As for the actual gold, the IRS treats precious metals as collectibles subject to long-term capital gains tax. Cryptocurrencies definitely do not belong in either of these categories, as they are neither collectibles (unless they are nonfungible tokens) nor less visible.
If the goal is literally to conceal the wealth, resorting to a store of value that is automatically tracked on an open, immutable ledger doesn’t sound like a good idea.
Maria Stankevich, chief business development officer at cryptocurrency exchange Exmo UK, commented to Cointelegraph: “Today massive BTC adoption is tightly connected not to the shadow money, but quite to the opposite — to its status of the transparent financial asset.” Tim Byun, global government relations officer at crypto exchange OKCoin, added:
“Taxing the ultra-wealthy has little or no impact on the surging adoption among all Americans and non-Americans into digital assets, specifically Bitcoin. […] It’s foolish to think that they (as well as anyone) will look to Bitcoin as a way to ‘hide’ their wealth given that Bitcoin leaves a permanent digital footprint.”
Douglas Borthwick, chief marketing officer at digital asset firm INX, said that viewing digital assets and Bitcoin (BTC) as a place to hide wealth is “rather off-base.” While U.S. tax residents can still buy Bitcoin on offshore platforms without rigorous Know Your Customer and Anti-Money Laundering requirements in place, there are serious risks associated with delivery and custody. According to Borthwick, millionaires typically resort to other strategies:
“They invest in high-ticket items to guard against inflationary purchases. Think of Masters’ paintings and parcels of real estate. There are many strategies that ultra-wealthy investors employ with their accountants to avoid more significant taxes. I’m not sure that digital assets would lead the charge there.”
OKCoin’s Byun opined that the ultra-rich will continue to preserve their wealth “through tried and true means as they have access to the brightest lawyers, financial advisors and consultants.”
An Indirect Effect?
Even if digital assets are no good for concealing households’ actual net worth, there could be other avenues for a hypothetical wealth tax to heighten millionaires’ interest in crypto. Here’s one:
According to a January report by the tax policy nonprofit Tax Foundation, a wealth tax of 2% to 3% could erase interest earnings on safer investments like bonds and bank deposits. This could become enough of an external shock to make wealthy investors reconsider their portfolios’ structure and recalibrate them so as to give more weight to the more risky yet higher-yield assets.
In other words, the hypothetical tax could embolden the rich to invest in cryptocurrencies and crypto derivatives to offset the stagnating gains from more traditional assets.
Yellen To Urge Global Minimum Company Tax To Stop Venue-Hopping
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen will argue Monday for a global corporate minimum tax rate as she pushes President Joe Biden’s plans to raise levies on U.S. companies, a person familiar with her remarks said.
Yellen’s comments, reported earlier by Axios, are part of an effort to prevent companies from seeking locations with lower taxes as the administration seeks higher levies on American firms to help pay for a $2.25 trillion infrastructure program.
“Competitiveness is about more than how U.S.-headquartered companies fare against other companies in global merger-and-acquisition bids,” Yellen will say in a speech to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. “It is about making sure that governments have stable tax systems that raise sufficient revenue to invest in essential public goods and respond to crises, and that all citizens fairly share the burden of financing government.”
Yellen will say the U.S. is working with G-20 nations to find an appropriate minimum “that can stop the race to the bottom.” The U.S. is involved in talks led by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development with about 140 countries to develop a global agreement on minimum levies, but participants haven’t yet reached a deal.
Biden’s plan, unveiled last week, includes raising the corporate income tax rate to 28% from 21%. It was lowered from 35% under President Donald Trump. The Biden administration is also seeking a 21% global minimum tax, which would be an increase from the roughly 13% that corporations currently owe on offshore earnings.
“Together we can use a global minimum tax to make sure the global economy thrives based on a more level playing field in the taxation of multinational corporations, and spurs innovation, growth, and prosperity,” Yellen will say.
Biden Tests Tech Giants’ Support For Global Tax Reform
White House’s proposal clears a path for an overhaul that could cost companies $100 billion.
For the world’s largest companies, global tax policy is proving the adage that you should be careful what you wish for.
European countries have pushed for tax reform for years, and the Biden administration’s latest proposal seems to offer what they asked for. U.S. tech giants said they were willing to pay more if it meant predictable bills. Now those claims may finally be put to the test.
The White House’s $2.3 trillion investment plan relies on 15 years of higher tax revenues underpinned by global rule changes to ensure that firms aren’t handicapped or tempted to flee overseas. The proposal ticks two key reform boxes for Europe’s governments: a global minimum tax to level the playing field and a reallocation of taxation rights so that the biggest companies pay more in countries where they make more revenue, regardless of where their physical assets are.
After years of mostly talk but little action, a tax deal once again seems possible. The U.S. plan differs somewhat from the detailed blueprints put forward by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development last year, but it simplifies the implementation and is likely close enough. The key differences are a higher minimum tax rate than previously discussed and an extension of which companies are covered by the new local taxation rights.
Global tax is a higher priority for President Biden than his predecessors, particularly as it is linked to his infrastructure plan. In the past, OECD digital tax reform progress stalled whenever U.S. engagement waned. Many countries may now compromise to expedite a deal, just in case American priorities change.
Everyone seems eager to put an end to today’s trans-Atlantic tech-tax battle. Frustrated by the slow pace of reform, France, among others, launched digital services taxes in the past years, promising to remove them if Washington negotiated in earnest. Mr. Biden’s proposal may clear a path to a long-term solution.
Both French and German finance ministers expressed optimism this week that a deal could be reached in 2021. Pascal Saint-Amans, who leads the OECD process, said this was a unique opportunity as countries don’t want a tax war and “what the U.S. is proposing now is peace.”
Obstacles do remain. Low-tax jurisdictions will fight hard to keep the business they attract as a result of global companies’ profit-shifting tactics, and the 21% minimum tax rate is much higher than previously discussed. Any global agreement would still need to be enacted by national legislators, which could prove tricky in the U.S. and elsewhere.
Many global companies gained political cover by publicly backing the OECD process, accepting higher taxes in exchange for more predictable bills globally. Investors may now get to see who was bluffing. The OECD estimated that a 12.5% minimum tax would cost companies about $100 billion more annually. Mr. Biden’s minimum tax proposal expects to raise a similar amount globally.
This week, Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos issued a carefully-worded statement backing some tax rises, but business associations are already lobbying hard against any such thing. Stock markets, which reacted enthusiastically to the Trump administration’s profit-boosting tax cuts, have paid little attention to the latest proposals. That may change with a deal, particularly if it makes headway in Congress.
Investors have long been able to comfortably ignore global tax reform. Those days may now be numbered.
New York City’s Wealthy Will Pay Nation’s Highest Tax Rates. How Will That Affect a Rebound?
State set to raise rates on top earners and corporations, hoping to boost public finances without hobbling the post-pandemic economy.
New York this week agreed to increase taxes on its most affluent residents and raise corporate franchise taxes, aiming to boost public finances without further hobbling an economy hit by the pandemic and lockdowns that have spurred remote work.
Business leaders say the increases—which would result in top earners in New York City being charged the highest combined tax rate in the U.S.—could backfire by driving away the very people and companies the city relies on for its revenue.
The $212 billion state budget plan, passed by the Democrat-run legislature and backed by unions and advocacy groups, includes more aid for schools, tenants and small businesses. It also funnels billions into other progressive causes, including investment in renewable energy, money to boost nonprofit arts and cultural centers and payments to workers who don’t qualify for federal aid because of their immigration status.
New York is having a slow recovery. The state’s unemployment rate of 8.9% in February, the most recent data, is second highest among the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Executives at New York City’s largest employers had rallied against increasing taxes in calls to state and local officials, saying higher rates weren’t necessary to ensure an economic revival and would worsen problems by draining budgets if companies and high earners leave for good.
The risk is especially high, they say, since companies have discovered in the work-at-home lockdown that they didn’t need to keep employees in New York City. For some, the high cost of a flagship office in Manhattan is no longer worth it, and they are taking workers elsewhere, contributing to the commercial-property slump.
Elliott Management Corp., Icahn Enterprises LP, Silver Lake, Blackstone Group Inc. and Moelis & Co. are among the firms that have either moved their headquarters or opened new offices in Florida in the past year. Goldman Sachs Asset Management is considering plans to expand in Florida, which has no state income tax. JetBlue Airways Corp. said it was looking at moving its headquarters to Florida when its New York City lease expires in 2023.
A number of other white-collar employers are embracing a hybrid model that will allow workdays at the office and at home, a shift already reducing office space needs at some companies. Last month, Citigroup Inc. told staffers that some should expect to come back to work only three days a week.
“For every 100 employees, we may need seats for only 60 on average,” JPMorgan Chase & Co. chief executive James Dimon wrote Wednesday in a letter to shareholders. “This will significantly reduce our need for real estate.”
Mr. Dimon said the bank would continue plans to build its new Park Avenue headquarters in Manhattan, accommodating as many as 14,000 employees. He supports higher taxes on the wealthy if it betters society, he wrote, but corporate tax rates should be kept reasonable and moderate.
Under the new budget, New York state income-tax rates will rise to 9.65% from 8.82% for single filers reporting more than $1 million of income and joint filers reporting more than $2 million. It adds two new tax brackets: Income over $5 million will be taxed at 10.3% and income greater than $25 million will be taxed at 10.9%. The budget also increases New York’s corporate franchise tax to 7.25% from 6.5% through 2023.
“There’s never been an experiment like this,” said George Walker, chairman and chief executive of investment manager Neuberger Berman. “We’ve never had people leave for over a year and then ask them, ‘Do you now want to move back to this materially higher tax jurisdiction?’ ”
New York was the No. 1 state for population loss in the U.S. from July 2019 to July 2020, according to Census Bureau data. More than 300,000 New York City households in higher-income neighborhoods filed change-of-address forms with the U.S. Postal Service from March to October last year.
The post-coronavirus drop in New York City’s total revenue forecast in the 2020 fiscal year, which ended June 30, was a less-than-expected $1 billion, with the pandemic’s economic disruptions offset by a surging stock market. The city forecasts a budget shortfall of $4 billion-plus in the 2023 to 2025 fiscal years, affecting the more than nine million people who live and work there.
The New York City Independent Budget Office, a nonpartisan publicly funded agency, said this week real property tax revenue, typically a source of revenue growth for the city, was expected to shrink by $1 billion in the 2022 fiscal year because of pandemic-related declines in rental income for commercial properties and residential apartment buildings.
Property values of hotels and retail space fell more than 20% in fiscal 2021 compared with 2020; office buildings fell 15%, and multifamily residential fell about 8% in the same period, according to the city comptroller’s office.
The result was the largest decline in property tax receipts since 1996. Residential and commercial property together made up about half the city’s tax revenue in fiscal 2019.
On the West Side of Manhattan, the $25 billion Hudson Yards development has hundreds of unsold condominiums, empty offices and closed shops and restaurants. Roughly $2.7 billion in outstanding Hudson Yards specific bonds were issued to pay for the 7 subway line extension and for public parks and housing. The city is responsible for bond payments if revenue from property owners in the Hudson Yards district falls short.
A spokeswoman for real-estate firm Related Cos., which developed Hudson Yards, said there has been momentum in condo sales in recent months and office tenants are accelerating return-to-work plans.
New York City could see a surging economy if the federal stimulus—and the end of the pandemic—drive growth in the second half of this year, city officials said.
Tech companies are still drawn to the city, and they could provide more of a boost. Amazon.com Inc., Facebook Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google have pledged to expand in New York City, though some are spending less than their pre-pandemic forecasts.
Edward Skyler, head of public affairs at Citigroup and a former deputy mayor in the Bloomberg administration, said the pandemic may be more challenging than past crises because of remote work, the uncertain return of tourism and potential cuts to social services and public-safety budgets.
“We did not see these really big challenges to the city’s financial stability after 9/11 and the financial crisis,” he said. “If you cut the services that protect public safety and quality of life, then the place becomes less livable. That’s the sort of 1980s spiral that left us with over 2,000 murders a year. That’s the place where you do not want to be.”
Municipal financing, one of New York City’s longstanding defenses against fiscal shortfalls, also was weakened in the pandemic.
In October, Moody’s Investors Service downgraded New York City, citing the fallout of Covid-19, and kept its outlook negative, meaning the rating could drop further in the next 12 to 18 months. S&P Global Ratings in December revised its outlook on the city’s AA rating to negative, which typically means a one in three chance the rating will be lowered within two years.
Fitch Ratings that month downgraded the city to AA- from AA. The moves likely added to the city’s long-term borrowing costs.
Bondholders are demanding more interest to hold New York City bonds relative to other municipal debt than they did before the pandemic. Thirty-year New York City bond yields averaged about a quarter of a percentage point higher than the AAA rate in the year that ended on March 1, 2020, according to Refinitiv Municipal Market Data. That average spread has more than doubled in the year since.
New York City mayoral spokeswoman Laura Feyer said the direct fiscal impacts of the rating and outlook changes were minimal, and the city has met all its borrowing needs at attractive rates. The city had a record $1.4 billion reserve in the 2020 fiscal year, she said.
The city has begun cutting payroll: It will have 12,000 fewer workers by fiscal 2022, which the mayor’s office estimates will save $350 million.
New York City officials see mass vaccinations and the Biden administration’s $1.9 trillion stimulus as a turning point. The federal legislation includes as much as $100 billion in state and local aid for New York, much of it earmarked for infrastructure, mass transit and small-business programs. New York City is slated to receive nearly $6 billion in direct federal aid and $4.5 billion for education.
New York’s tax proposals were the focus of talks in past weeks among the heads of banks, insurers, law firms, real-estate companies and media firms in the Partnership for New York City, a nonprofit group that represents the city’s business leaders and nearly all of the city’s largest employers.
“We didn’t necessarily persuade representatives in the legislature to go our way,” said Steve Swartz, chief executive of media company Hearst Communications Inc., which employs about 3,000 people in New York City and occupies more than 1 million square feet in Midtown Manhattan’s Hearst Tower. Hearst remains committed to New York, he said after news of the budget deal.
Mr. Swartz, co-chair of the Partnership, said he and other members have more worries about persuading highly compensated finance and professional services employees to return to the city after months of working remotely.
“We just don’t know what the result of this Zoom culture is,” he said. “It’s not the question of if they’re going to leave, it’s if they’re going to come back.”
Pressure on New York also comes from geographic competitors. In February, Florida’s chief financial officer sent a letter to the New York Stock Exchange touting the advantages of moving to the Sunshine State.
The chief executives at several financial firms said they were contacted by Miami Mayor Francis Suarez about Florida’s lower taxes and warmer weather. Mr. Suarez didn’t respond to requests for comment.
Blair Effron, who co-leads investment bank Centerview Partners LLC, said he knows of companies that have moved out of New York or are thinking about it. He is staying put, he said.
Mr. Effron has worked at the office most of the week over the past months, and he hopes a majority of employees will join him as early as this summer. Centerview is primarily an in-office institution that relies on the kind of collaboration best done in face-to-face conversations, he said.
He and others say the arts, culture and sports of New York City are incomparable as well as more accessible with the past year’s decline in housing costs. “If you want to live in a city with all the benefits of what the city brings,” Mr. Effron said, “you’re coming back.”
Plans For A Bigger Pie Of Global Taxes, Sliced Fairly
Multinational companies have long used creative — and legal — ways to shrink their tax bills. One is to book profits from customers in places like Boston and Berlin as if they came from, say, Bermuda, which has no corporate income tax.
Long-stalled efforts to revamp the global tax system are getting a new push, thanks to the pandemic and a policy U-turn from the U.S. The complex proposals boil down to two basic notions: setting a minimum corporate tax rate across the world (think of this as making a bigger revenue pie), and rewriting the rules for allocating that revenue among countries (cutting the pie up differently).
1. Why Is This Coming Up Now?
U.S. President Joe Biden is counting on increased corporate tax revenue to fund new spending on infrastructure and social programs. His plan includes raising taxes on U.S. companies and pushing for a 21% minimum levy for U.S. companies’ foreign income, which could pressure many countries to raise their current rate. Proposals from the U.S. have given fresh impetus to a years-long effort led by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a club of 37 mostly rich countries, to counter corporate strategies “that exploit gaps and mismatches in tax rules to avoid paying tax.”
2. Is This About More Taxes Or Fairer Taxes?
The two ideas have become linked. Internet companies in particular have long been the target of complaints that they don’t pay their fair share of taxes. The backlash gained momentum during the pandemic, as deep-pocketed technology giants benefited from a surge in online commerce while countries needed funds to pay for the health crisis. Century-old rules for allocating profits to different jurisdictions didn’t anticipate a globalized economy where data is the raw material.
And some countries are also pushing for a global minimum tax to stop race-to-the-bottom competition among governments.
3. Could This Actually Happen?
That’s hard to say. Tax rules are already complex, and some of the proposals can seem fiendishly complicated. Yet global technology giants have mostly supported the OECD process, hoping to avoid a potentially chaotic mushrooming of unilateral measures around the world. What’s more, a new U.S. proposal opens the door to allocating more taxing rights to the countries where companies are making sales, instead of the ones where they’re based.
The plan could mean, for example, the U.S. collects more income tax from foreign companies when U.S. consumers buy handbags made by France’s LVMH, or cars sold by Germany’s BMW AG. The OECD plan would also halt national measures from many countries aimed specifically at taxing tech giants — which U.S. officials and lawmakers have argued were less about fairness and more about targeting American firms.
4. What Would This Mean For Companies?
Those affected would see a major shift. The plan wouldn’t necessarily raise companies’ taxes, but it would likely change where some of their profits are taxed. That has many companies concerned that they’ll face new compliance challenges — a worry the U.S. proposal tries to address –and that they could get caught in disputes between governments trying to assert their new, broader taxing rights.
5. What’s Wrong With The Current System?
The “legal and not-so-legal” use of tax havens costs governments $500 billion to $600 billion in lost corporate tax revenue each year, according to estimates cited by the International Monetary Fund.
The Tax Justice Network, a U.K. advocacy group that says it wants a fairer tax system, names the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, the Netherlands and Switzerland (in that order) as the top five “jurisdictions most complicit in helping multinational corporations underpay corporate income tax.” U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said the goal of the proposed global minimum rate is to end a “30-year race to the bottom on corporate tax rates.”
6. How Would A Global Minimum Tax Work?
Here’s a scenario sketched out in a paper for the Atlantic Council by Jeff Goldstein, a former special assistant to the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers: A company headquartered in Country A is reporting income in Country B, where the rate is 11%.
With a global minimum rate of 15% in effect, Country A would “top up” the tax and collect another 4% of the company’s profit from Country B — representing the difference between Country B’s rate and the global minimum rate. That undercuts any advantage of shifting to lower-tax places and pressures countries to conform to the global norm.
7. Who Benefits From The Current System?
Many large corporations do. At least 55 large U.S. companies, including Nike Inc. and FedEx Corp., reported paying no U.S. federal income taxes in 2020 even though they were profitable, according to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.
And some nations benefit by attracting corporations with low rates. Ireland, with a corporate tax rate of 12.5% — among the lowest across industrialized nations — boasts the European headquarters of companies including Google, Facebook and Apple. Ireland won the most foreign investment projects in Europe on a per capita basis in 2019, according to advisory firm EY. Among the 27 members of the European Union, corporate tax rates range from 9% in Hungary to 31.5% in Portugal, according to the Tax Foundation.
8. Who Is Leading This Effort?
The OECD is trying to broker an agreement among about 140 countries to write new rules addressing how digital firms are taxed and to create a minimum global levy. It supports the idea of requiring a multinational company to pay at least a minimum rate in every country where it pays tax.
Biden’s proposed minimum rate of 21% for the U.S. is higher than proposals so far discussed at the OECD, which had honed in on 12.5%. Frustrated by a lack of progress at the OECD, some nations, such as France, have imposed so-called digital services taxes on local sales of companies such as Facebook, Amazon and Google — grabbing a bigger share of the pie.
9. How Do Digital Taxes Work?
France led the way, imposing a 3% levy on revenue such as targeted advertising and the sale of data for companies with at least 750 million euros ($894 million) in global revenue and digital sales of 25 million euros in France. Of about 30 businesses affected, most are American, but the list also includes Chinese, German and British as well as French firms.
What Would Biden’s Tax Hikes Mean For Bitcoin?
Tax hikes could encourage profit taking in cryptocurrencies, but some investors remain bullish as ongoing stimulus could trigger inflation.
U.S. President Joe Biden’s proposal to raise taxes to help pay for increased infrastructure spending and other economic stimulus programs could stunt this year’s rally in bitcoin.
Analysts say the largest cryptocurrency has benefited from the government’s record budget deficits, ever since the coronavirus hit the economy in full force in March 2020, with the Federal Reserve helping to finance extra government borrowing by purchasing U.S. Treasury bonds.
Some investors see bitcoin as a useful hedge against inflation, viewing ultra-loose monetary policy and long-term currency debasement as tailwinds for the cryptocurrency. Others see bitcoin as a risky asset whose prices have rallied because of the easy financial conditions, similar to the way stocks have pushed toward fresh records despite the economic turbulence.
Whatever the case, any tax hikes, which still face steep resistance from corporate lobbyists as well as lawmakers from the opposition Republican Party, might represent the first effort to impose fiscal discipline in the U.S. since the coronavirus hit.
“The U.S. actions are not bullish for bitcoin, as tax increases could be a thorn in the recovery and will drag down investments,” wrote Edward Moya, analyst at Oanda, a foreign exchange brokerage firm, in an email to CoinDesk.
Included in Biden’s proposals is an increase in both the corporate tax rate and the individual rate for high earners – the first major tax hike since 1993.
Higher taxes could stall the economic recovery at a time when the Federal Reserve is increasingly vocal about the need for ongoing monetary and fiscal support. Prospects for slower growth could trigger profit-taking across risk assets including cryptocurrencies.
Raising taxes could also offset the widening federal budget deficit, which is estimated to be about 10% of GDP in 2021, the second largest since 1945, exceeded only by the 15% shortfall recorded last year, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
“An improving fiscal and debt sustainability outlook could lead to a stronger dollar and put pressure on crypto assets like bitcoin, which some investors view as a hedge against inflation and currency debasement,” Garrick Hileman, head of research at Blockchain.com, told CoinDesk in an email.
There’s plenty of room for disagreement. Ariel Zetlin-Jones, an economics professor at Carnegie Mellon University who has studied cryptocurrency markets, told CoinDesk that the relationship between economic output and effective corporate tax rates is quite weak, suggesting that other factors might be the key determinant of growth.
It’s also possible that the additional tax revenue might simply embolden lawmakers’ spending plans.
“The likelihood of responsible fiscal budgeting remains low,” wrote Alexander Blum, managing director at Two Prime, a digital asset investment firm. “Continued support from the Fed means there will be more capital looking for new areas to invest in growth.”
That means investors still might look to higher-risk, higher-reward assets such as cryptocurrencies, which have at times in the past been uncorrelated with traditional assets such as stocks and bonds.
For now, more fiscal spending and continued monetary easing appears to be the new normal, both positive for risk assets. Higher taxes are still just a proposal.
“The present scenario is unprecedented in scale, where a pandemic has driven massive stimulus packages that require continues funding and money printing,” wrote Joe DiPasquale, CEO of BitBull Capital, in an email to CoinDesk.
