essential reading for tax reform planning 7 May 2010
By Nazani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From the cover: " According to Gentry and Hubbard, because wealthier households receive a larger portion of their income in the forms treated similarly by income and consumption taxes, a consumption tax is more progressive than is often assumed."
81 pages, with footnotes, tables, list of Board of Trustees and members of the American enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research in 1997.
chapters include:
Comparison of Unifrom Ppure income and consumption taxes
Consequences of shifting the tax base from income to consumption
Elimination of the differential taxation of capital income
Role of household portfolio consumption
Distributional implications of tax reform
Appendix: Effects of fundamental tax reform on asset prices.

Surprisingly readable. Anyone with a basic knowledge of economics and statistics will be able to assess the authors' arguments.
