    1. This book is a great primer on how taxes work, why they are arranged as they are and who benefits from varying tax regimes. It's fairly informative and attemptedly unbiased. However, this book is incredibly boring. As someone who loves to talk about taxes for fun and professionally, I thought the details were drab and elementary. If you didn't like the topic or have a firm mind, you might get lost after Ch. 3. Overall, it's not a bad book. Taxes are boring as hell and the book provided the highe [...]


    2. Any text that talks about taxation without emphasizing it social benefits and its egalitarian necessity is not worth the time spent on reading it, and, in general, any economic text that fail to place at its center the impact of its promotions on real people and their interactions outside its formulae is inherently biased against broad based relevance.To claim that taxes make us poorer is to ignore how infrastructure, R&d, public education, essential services, police, military, and so on, en [...]


    3. "Taxing Ourselves: A Citizen's Guide to the Debate Over Taxes" by Joel Slemrod and Jon Bakija covers the many different tax regimes from sales tax, to the Value Added Tax (VAT), to a flat tax, progressive tax, and regressive tax, and also looks at hybrids between them.

The book mainly focuses on the application of taxes, not on how they are utilized. From the title I th [...]


    4. This should be required reading, but maybe I think this because I love tax policy it should at least be required reading for people who have opinions on tax policy and like to vote, and also for people who make tax policy (worst review ever).


    5. Outstanding tax policy volume by America's leading expert on taxes (Joel Slemrod) and co-author Jon Bakija. Intended for the non-technical reader, it is nevertheless full of well-explained concepts and facts.





    6. This is a great introduction to the basics of tax policy. Covers a lot of the economic aspects necessary for consideration in proposing reform. Don't bother if you've taken a class on revenue theory.
