Greater propensity for panic?

Buongiorno, James, had your morning coffee yet?

Would the disparity have anything to do with tax? Or has US monetary inflation been worse than ours? Or is it to do with the biggest corporations getting bigger, and happening to be American?

Its entirely due to taxation, and not just direct tax but a myriad of corporate taxes and levies.

Its like pouring goo onto the economy.
