Tax Cuts and Balanced Budgets

June 24, 2007

Boring, boring and more boring, I know.   But the Caulk is Cheap wayback machine is here to make the subject a little more entertaining and to show that the more things change, the more they stay the same. 

Obviously taxes were in the news in 1926:


(Title: “No New Taxes”)

And this is the 1935 version of the balanced budget debate:


(Title:  “Baby New Year Balances the Budget”)

Both covers are from J.C. Leyendecker (think Arrow Collar ads), one of the best illustrators of the 20th century. He also had a way with the male form. See here:

  1. Great article. It is rather unfortunate that over the last ten years, the travel industry has had to take on terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, and the first ever real global downturn. Through it all the industry has really proven to be sturdy, resilient and dynamic, discovering new strategies to deal with difficulty. There are continually fresh issues and possibilities to which the business must again adapt and act in response.

  2. F*ckin’ tremendous things here. I’m very happy to see your post. Thank you a lot and i am taking a look ahead to touch you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?
