An ironic Story to say the least…
Over 300 years ago England implemented a tax on bricks. Each brick that was used in a project was taxed. Builders of the time, thinking outside the box, realized that they could reduce the amount they paid in taxes by increasing the size of the bricks they used. Using fewer bricks would amount to less tax! Pretty simple mathematical solution, right?
Needles to stay, like all governments, it took a while for them to catch on. A couple of years later a larger tax on bigger bricks was instituted.
Much like today… the bigger your pay check the more you pay in taxes.
