The Myth of a Fair Tax

The myth of the fair tax is the myth of the just tax. Taxation is a coerced, not voluntary, exchange. It is false to say bureaucrats pay taxes. They consume taxes. They plunder. They are the tax eaters. The rest of us are tax payers. Taxes like money are never neutral to the market.

Archived from the live Mises.tv broadcast, this lecture by Joe Salerno was presented at the Taxes Are What We Pay for an Impoverished Society seminar, hosted by the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama, on 15 April 2013.
