Quote of the Week

“The U.S. economy grew most quickly when taxes on the wealthy were at their highest, not their lowest. During the 1960s, the only decade in which the annual growth rate averaged 4 percent, the top estate tax rate was 77 percent throughout the decade and the top income tax rate was as a high as 91 percent and never lower than 70 percent.”
John Miller, Taxing the Wealthy and the Art of Sophistry, Dollars & Sense, November/December 2016
