Summary
This book provides the history of progressive taxation from twenty countries over the last two centuries. It explores the intellectual and political debates surrounding the taxation of the wealthy while also providing detailed examination to date of when taxes have been levied against the rich and when they haven't. Fairness in debates about taxing the rich has depended on different views of what it means to treat people as equals and whether taxing the rich advances or undermines this norm. This book shows how the future of tax reform will depend on whether political and economic conditions allow for new compensatory arguments to be made. The book consists of three parts: (I) debating taxation; (II) when have governments taxed the rich? and (III) why have governments taxed the rich?
