Summary
Why are citizens in some countries more willing to pay taxes than in other countries? This book examines the history of the relationship between citizens and their states in five countries (Sweden, Britain, Italy, Romania, and the United States), and demonstrates how and why people in some countries have come to trust the government with their money while in other countries they do not. The book explores the evolution of this relationship in detail, in each case showing how some governments developed the fiscal and technical capacity to tax their citizens fairly and deliver public services efficiently. The volume concludes by examining the implications of these five cases for developing countries today and the lessons that can be learned
