American Tax Resisters

American Tax Resisters by Romain D. Huret
English | 2014 | ISBN: 0674281373 | 384 pages | PDF | 2 MB

"The American taxpayer"--angered by government waste & satisfied only with spending cuts--has preoccupied elected officials & political commentators since the Reagan Revolution. But resistance to progressive taxation has older, deeper roots. presents the full history of the American anti-tax movement that has defended the pursuit of limited taxes on wealth & battled efforts to secure social justice through income redistribution for the past 150 years.

From the Tea Party to the Koch brothers, the major players in today's anti-tax crusade emerge in Romain Huret's account as the heirs of a formidable--& far from ephemeral--political movement. Diverse coalitions of Americans have rallied around the flag of tax opposition since the Civil War, their grievances fueled by a determination to defend private life against government intrusion & a steadfast belief in the economic benefits & just rewards of untaxed income. Local tax resisters were actively mobilized by business & corporate interests throughout the early twentieth century, undeterred by such setbacks as the Sixteenth Amendment establishing a federal income tax. Zealously petitioning Congress & chipping at the edges of progressive tax policies, they bequeathed hard-won experience to younger generations of conservatives in their pursuit of laissez-faire capitalism.

Capturing the decisive moments in U.S. history when tax resisters convinced a majority of Americans to join their crusade, Romain Huret explains how a once marginal ideology became mainstream, elevating economic success & individual entrepreneurialism over social sacrifice & solidarity.
