"Tax Tyranny" Among New Releases
(Washington, DC, Friday, June 20, 2008) - Several new videos on taxation are available for viewers in America and around the world. A new "
Tax Tyranny" video narrated and produced by Beverly Halberg highlights the harsh consequences of oppressive taxation.
The video also presents a stark contrast between the low tax rates of the dynamic Irish economy and the stifling tax policies promulgated by the EU and OECD in the name of "tax harmonization."
Capitol Hill Broadcasting Network:
Andrew Quinlan, President of the Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation, applauds the new video, noting that, "As incentives to
work and keep what you earn are weakened, it becomes more difficult to maintain high worker productivity and steady economic growth." Mr. Quinlan goes on to state, "Europe is a perfect example. There is a
clear divergence in economic growth of those countries pursuing flat tax policies and those countries imposing a punitive tax burden on more productive citizens."
Unfortunately, as the video observes, international bureaucracies such as the EU and OECD are trying to undermine tax competition between countries in an effort to prop up inefficient welfare states such as France and Germany.
CF&P Foundation would also like to highlight a six-part video series from the Polish-American
Foundation for Economic Research and Education (PAFERE) that shares with the world a speech by CF&P Board member and Cato Institute Senior Fellow Dan Mitchell's lecture at Lazarski School of Commerce and Law in Warsaw on the Global Flat Tax Revolution. The situation did not allow for ideal lighting and sound, but advocates of tax reform will enjoy the thorough explanation of why the flat tax is needed:
