Abstract

This article makes a compelling case that the United States could learn from the imaginative tax policy-maker Peter the Great and institute a tax on beards. Such a tax could raise a little revenue, decrease scruffiness, and provide a new subject for cutting-edge law review notes.

Notes: This a description of the paper and not the actual abstract.

Keywords: Humor, Taxation, Peter the Great

JEL Classification: K34
