Tax Policy: As If People Mattered

New Media  | 23 de agosto de 2011  | Vistas: 13

Fiscal policy is one of the important issues governments deal with during their administration. Different tax systems have been established around the world, which have ultimately proven to be inefficient; enabling states to grow at rates never seen before in history. In this conference, Christopher Lingle defies these systems and explains how they have failed to achieve their main goals. He explains the role that economists have played in empowering governments with taxpayers' money and describes how citizens suffer under such a coercive structure. Lingle talks about the two major theoretical currents regarding this topic and explains the need to limit the way people are being taxed, and focus primarily on increasing economic growth.
