Financing the U.S. federal government requires enormous tax receipts now and in the future. This will, and should, entail significantly higher tax rates for the rich, along with higher taxes for much of the income-earning U.S. population. In this presentation Professor James R. Hines Jr., Professor of Economics and Law will discuss the most sensible way to pay for the federal government, noting that the answer lies largely in higher tax rates, not in the many popularly-discussed alternatives.
