The 100th anniversary of the estate tax - MarketWatch - In 1916, as World War I raged in Europe, Congress wanted to boost U.S. revenues in case America joined the fighting, so lawmakers voted for a new tax on a person’s assets at death. This levy affected fewer than 1% of Americans who died and raised less than 1% of federal revenue in 1917.

Valkyrie Might Be The Baddest And Most Gorgeous Plane Ever Made | Popular Science - The Valkyrie's Specs Inventor: David Loury Company: Cobalt Breathtaking Speed: With a 350-horsepower engine, the Valkyrie can reach 260 knots (300 miles per hour). It has a range of 1,200 miles. Unparalleled Point of View: Valkyrie’s single-piece Plexiglas canopy is the largest ever on a private plane, providing a 320-degree view. Maturity: 5/5The canard also makes it nearly impossible to stall—to lose lift in midair. Coupled with simple controls (just one handle-to-handle throttle) and the information-rich Garmin G3X flight-display system, Valkyrie is extremely user-friendly. “When you start the engine, it’s as easy to control as a car,” Loury says. “So even if you are a bad pilot, it will forgive your errors.”Loury’s startup, Cobalt, plans to start filling preorders for the experimental version of the plane, Valkyrie X, as early as late 2016, and aims to make the consumer version, Co50 Valkyrie, available in mid-2017. The only thing standing between you and a Co50 Valkyrie is the $750,000 price tag. “It’s not cheap to make a plane like this,” says Loury. But he points out the price is only slightly more than similar private aircraft. “Before the Valkyrie, the offerings weren’t glamorous or fun,” he says, “and not nearly worth the effort.”This article was originally published in the May/June issue of Popular Science.
