Obama/Romney Tax Proposals and Economic Growth

Tax Notes, October 2012

Abstract:     
This article is adapted from my book, The Obama vs. Romney Debate on Economic Growth, A Citizen’s Guide to the Issues, published by iUniverse and available through Barnes & Noble and Amazon. The article argues that the individual rate structure should be more progressive than even the rate structure prior to the Bush tax cuts; the tax rates on capital gains and dividends should be returned to their pre-Bush rates, and an imputation system should be adopted for taxing foreign income and the revenue savings from the adoption of such a system should be used to significantly lower the corporate tax rate. All of these policy options would require Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan to violate their 'no-new tax' pledge to Grover Norquist’s organization.
