A presentation by another has this as its title:
“Anti-Tax America: The Origins Of Our National Obsession With Tax Cuts”
I’m not going to link to them. They are linked at TaxProf Blog if you want to read more.
Are these representative of what tax law professors spend their time thinking, writing and speaking about?
