Cutting tax rates since the 1980s
To escape the slump of the 1970s, tax rates were cut since the 1980s. It didn’t solve all the problems, but it helped stopping the downward spiral of the 1970s.
Watchout! Going back to high tax rates will hurt the poor with less jobs, as learned from past experiments. It is not courageous. It is selfish for most keeping their job, while others will lose theirs, truly sacrificed to save the planet.
