Alan Viard says it time to replace the current Income Tax system

With just 9% of Americans saying that we have the best tax system, maybe it way past time to replace our present Income Tax code.  

Alan Viard discusses the benefits of junking the income tax system in favor of a progressive consumption tax.


Alan Viard is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and one of  the most respected public finance economists in the nation. He is the co-author of  a new book, “Progressive Consumption Taxation.” The book explains how the United States can move away from taxing income and toward taxing consumption; and how this new system is both fair and promotes economic growth.
