    I disagree, we can’t prevent something unless the tax is high and even then farmers use it too, the tax could also backfire leading to more riskier
    investments perhaps more transparency and restrictions are necessary.

    The index of economic freedom is a biased index
    it shows heritage’s flaws as they rank countries
    on success even though many are “tax and spend”

    We could go on and on about how singapore has a great public school system as proof that gov works, and of course using a single element
    is very anecdotal, for instance singapore had strict gun control and I doubt heritage will tout that as a model, likewise singapore
    has high income inequality , so citizen won’t.

    I applaud public citizen but this is a poor article, whether a tax is warranted is debatable
    but using heritage to justify something further
    is not, what if heritage lowered its ranking based on the tax, would this article exist?

    Excellent article, one more proof that taxes are key to a thriving society/economy because public spending is a critical economic engine for growth, not only through direct spending on infrastructure and R&D, etc., but also by putting money in the pockets of consumers.
