Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Eugene Steuerle makes a major contribution to public policy debate." -- National Tax Journal

"...ought to be studied by every member of Congress" -- Robert J. Samuelson, Newsweek magazine

Review

Steuerle has just written a book, Contemporary U.S. Tax Policy, that ought to be studied by every member of Congress and, more important, addresses the insistent question: why is the federal tax system such a mess? The answer, in a word, is democracy. ―Robert J. Samuelson, Contributing Editor, Newsweek, on the first edition

If you want to know how our tax laws really are made, read Gene Steuerle's valuable analysis of the past two extraordinary decades of fiscal policy. Steuerle brings an important perspective as both a long-time Washington insider and one of the nation's best tax economists to this complex and profoundly important tale. ―Howard Gleckman, Senior Correspondent, Business Week, on the first edition

Gene Steuerle has once again proven why he is one of the most honest and credible tax authorities in Washington. His book provides an unusually principled, unbiased, and reliable account of modern tax policy―a particularly important contribution when so many analysts on both the left and the right are focused on pushing ideological agendas. ―Maya MacGuineas, Executive Director, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, The New America Foundation, on the first edition
