This review is from: Showdown at Gucci Gulch (Paperback)
This book documents the process/drama behind the astonishingly comprehensive mid-1980s overhaul of the US Income Tax system.
The goals were to:
- Simplify the tax system.
- Reduce marginal rates.
- Broaden the tax base.
Those goals were accomplished. What is especially interesting reading this now (2012) is that our country really needs a similar effort to take place.
To see our current dysfunctional congress arguing these issues, you might imagine that nothing resembling this is possible. But this book proves that it IS possible. It happened. It is quite interesting to find out exactly how.
