Fortune favours babes of boomers, and it all comes tax-free | The Australian
Adam Creighton comes out and argues that a modest sized inheritance tax would be a good idea. (But only if income taxes are lowered too, it seems.)
I had been wondering about this, as I think I saw Catallaxy a while ago run a bit by McCloskey in which she supported inheritance taxes too. (It seems, now that I Google it, that she has supported them for some time.)
Given their general allergy to taxes in all forms, I am surprised to see IPA aligned economist types tentatively suggesting a new one.
Next thing you know they'll be promoting a straight forward carbon tax as a sensible thing.
Update: I see that the IPA's Novak is still against them. Should I be congratulating Creighton for a having a view that isn't IPA endorsed?
