“In view of what they hear from the experts, the people cannot be blamed for their ignorance and their helpless confusion. If an average housewife struggles with her incomprehensibly shrinking budget and sees a tycoon in a resplendent limousine, she might well think that just one of his diamond cuff links would solve all her problems. . .”
If you’re toiling over your tax returns as the filing deadline approaches, why not pause to read Yaron Brook’s take on why you would be justified in feeling resentful of the tax code’s many manipulations.
Don’t miss an all new episode of The Yaron Brook Show tomorrow, Friday, April 10. Yaron will talk about Tax Day, covering such issues as why taxation is immoral and how to properly fund the government.
You may have heard about “inversions,” which have become a hot topic of debate in the wake of Burger King’s acquisition of Tim Hortons. Megan McArdle provides some much-needed context for that debate (although my jaw dropped when I got to her line about “what you owe the government that raised you”). Cato Institute scholar and Debt Dialogues guest Dan Mitchell has more.
Tune in tonight (Thursday, April 10) for an appearance by Yaron Brook on Stossel featuring a discussion with host John Stossel about the crushing burden of taxation. The show starts at 9 p.m. eastern time on the Fox Business Network.
