Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The famed economist F.A. Hayek called this "a highly important essay," but that was a vast understatement. Written by two University of Chicago law professors, the book is suprisingly philosophical yet also practical. A clear and persuasive debunking of all the arguments used to defend taxing the next $100 of income at different (marginal) rates depending on how much you've already earned. Only 104 pages of text, albeit in smallish print, it still packs a lot of punch in a small package.
