The Global Flat Tax Revolution

Here's another great video from my friend and top tax reform expert Dan Mitchell over at the Cato Institute.

According to Dan:

There’s good news and bad news in the world of tax policy. The good news is that a growing number of nations now have flat tax systems instead of so-called progressive tax schemes that punish people for contributing more to economic growth. The bad news is that the United States is conspicuously absent on the list of flat-tax jurisdictions. Defenders of the internal revenue code often argue that a flat tax is an impractical idea, but this new video demonstrates that the flat tax is working very well and spreading rapidly as nations compete to offer more attractive tax policy to the world’s investors and entrepreneurs.
