it was amazing
bookshelves: politics-economics
Read from October 03 to 05, 2011

Newman's combines precise economic and statistical analysis with solid ethnographic motivations to create this short tome detailing the role sales tax plays as a regressive tax which disproportionately hurts the poor, particularly in Southern states. A must-read in light of the current public policy debates on taxation in the United States.
