Summary: This is must reading for presidential candidates, members of the tax writing committees of Congress and all Americans who are interested in a growing economy.

To most Americans, the United States tax code has become a vast and confounding puzzle. In 1940, the instructions to the form 1040 were about four pages long. Today they have ballooned to more than a hundred pages, and the form itself contains more than ten schedules and twenty worksheets. The complete tax code totals about 2.8 million words?about four times the length of War and Peace. In this intriguing book, Michael Graetz maintains that our tax code has become a tangle of loopholes, paperwork, and inconsistencies?a massive social program that fails tests of simplicity and fairness. More important, our tax system has failed to keep pace with the changing economy, creating burdens and wastes of resources that weigh our nation down.
Graetz offers a solution. Imagine a world in which most Americans pay no income tax at all, and those who do enjoy a far simpler tax process?all this without decreasing government revenues or removing key incentives for employer-sponsored health care plans and pensions. As Graetz adeptly and clearly describes, this world is within our grasp.
Über den Autor: Michael J. Graetz is Justus S. Hotchkiss Professor of Law, Yale University, and he publishes frequently on the subject of federal taxation. He has served as Assistant to the Secretary and Special Counsel at the Treasury Department, as Treasury Deputy Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy, and as a member of the Commissioner's Advisory Group of the Internal Revenue Service.
