'When It Comes to Taxes, Less is More'

April 13, 2012 1 minute Read by Robert Asahina

Diana Furchtgott-Roth, a contributing editor of RealClearMarkets, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, and a columnist for the Examiner, was a panelist at the 4% Growth Project's conference on taxes and economic growth. Although skeptical of a value-added tax, she gives a sympathetic account of Larry Lindsey's arguments for a VAT. "If Mr. Lindsey is correct," she writes, "perhaps it's time to give the VAT a second look." Her account of the 4% Growth Project's conference can be found here.
