The Case Against the Flat Tax

Tags Taxes and Spending

07/20/2005Murray N. Rothbard

The flat tax draws virtually unanimous support from the "right-thinking" intellectuals in our society, including academics, writers, and media pundits—all people who have managed successfully to identify their own views, whatever they may be, with the general welfare. Any policy that draws unanimous support from these people can’t be all good. There must be a catch somewhere.


Murray N. Rothbard

Murray N. Rothbard made major contributions to economics, history, political philosophy, and legal theory. He combined Austrian economics with a fervent commitment to individual liberty.
