Leading economists and scholars discuss and debate current tax policy issues in non-technical language, illustrating how the principles of tax analysis can be applied to real-world issues. Among the topics addressed are the practical feasibility of consumption tax alternatives to the current income tax, the rationale and implications of devolution of fiscal responsibilities to state and local governments, the effect of tax policy on economic growth, and the value of local tax incentives designed to attract and retain business. This volume collects articles from the Symposium series of the National Tax Journal from 1993 to 1998.

• State-of-the-art analysis of current tax policy issues • Ideal supplement to a public finance textbook • Illustrates economics in action
