At the end of 2017, the Republicans passed a very nice tax policy for the wealthy. But what if they had passed a tax policy for the non-wealthy? In 2018, the top 20%, which starts at $157,900, received $10.5 trillion of income, but the federal government received a total of $1.7 trillion as personal income tax. Even if the top 20% paid all the personal income tax, their effective tax rate would only be about 16%. And if they did pay all the personal income tax, that means that anyone earning less than $157,900 would not have to pay any personal income tax at all! Would not that tax policy help the poor and the middle class much more and reduce government handouts? And since poorer people have a higher marginal propensity to consume, would not tax breaks to these people stimulate the economy more than giving the tax breaks to the wealthy? My new book, Trickle-Up Economics, shows how most people could pay much less tax without an undue burden on the wealthy. My proposal is based on simple economic principles that anyone can understand. It will be easy to see why this tax policy is the best, both for the economy and for the people, and it will also expose the lies, fallacies, and faulty reasoning used by politicians to justify an unfair tax system.
