Add comment on:Tax Evasion and the Social State
Brigitte Unger and Hans-Joachim Schabedoth
The good social state invests in the social, in the education of children of the new lower classes... Taxes is the price we pay for a civilized society (Oliver Wendell Holmes). A state that acts to protect its citizens needs revenue to do this. The state share must increase in a developed society since ever greater demands are made on the state. While a basic principle of a fair tax system is that income should be taxed equally, labor suffers a clear disadvantage.
