New Column on Upper-Income Tax Rates

Ben Eisen, Blog, Uncategorized

My most recent column is posted at Troy Media’s website.  Here, I oppose proposals to introduce very high taxes on high-income earners in the 70-80% range. I think the introduction of these kinds of stratospheric tax rates would be a disaster, and would wind up hurting housholds all across the income distribution by significantly slowing down economic growth.
