Summary
In most industrialized countries the tax burden of poor people has increased dramatically over the last decades. This book analyses both the political origins of this increase and its consequences for the labour market. The author illustrates that tax-based redistribution and employment are not incompatible, and that the shift away from redistribution has not occurred on grounds of economic efficiency. He goes on to show that a long-term shift from capital to labour taxation has provoked conflicts of interests between workers that have weakened the political cause of tax-based redistribution
