In Our Selfish Tax Laws: Toward Tax Reform That Mirrors Our Better Selves, Anthony C. Infanti considers how US federal tax laws reflect the self-image that American people have of themselves and of their society. Infanti's main argument is that law and society mirror each other. For tax law this means that it is not merely a "pocket issue" about money, though mainstream tax scholars so presume.
