Abstract:     
In his pioneering 1978 article "The Theory of Interstellar Trade," Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman considered how interest charges on goods in transit between the stars should be computed. This article seeks to expand on Krugman’s seminal work - and establish my claim to a Nobel Prize - by considering whether income earned in flight should be subject to the federal income tax.
