Sensible Taxes and Practical Politics

James R. Hines,Jr.

  • Offers a contrarian view of how to make America's tax system better
  • Argues that a good tax system has a narrow base and high rates
  • Maintains that the political system works better when it is possible to dole out tax goodies to interest groups
  • Shows that an income tax loaded with deductions and credits can be much more progressive than a stripped-down tax
