The Great Revenue Robbery
Faced with growing inequality and cutback to government programs, public opinion polls show strong support for tax fairness, including raising taxes on the rich and on corporations. The Great Revenue Robbery shows us how tax policy can help rebuild our social programs, reduce the gap between rich and poor, restore environmental responsibility, and revitalize our democracy.
