Economic puppetmasters : lessons from the halls of power by Lawrence B Lindsey( )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an insider's perspective on the bureaucratic structure of governmental institutions that shape economic policy and on the incentives and limitations of the individuals who head those institutions. The book is a work of contemporary history, written as events unfold. We do not know how today's events will end, but without a doubt they pose the greatest challenge since the Second World War to those who are responsible for the world's economic health. This book is a guide to how the world's economic decisionmakers think, what drives them, and what limits their scope of action."--Jacket
The growth experiment revisited : why lower, simpler taxes really are America's best hope for recovery by Lawrence B Lindsey( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of The Growth Experiment, originally published in 1990 as a response to critics of the Reagan-era tax cuts, became a kind of bible for proponents of supply-side economics. This new and updated edition, which explores the economic effects of America's tax policy over the last five presidential administrations, makes a bold and timely argument against the centerpiece of Obama's economic policy -increasing taxes on the wealthy. Lawrence Lindsey provides a data-rich argument showing that because of changes in human behavior prompted by tax cuts, lowering taxes on the wealthy "costs" the treasury far less than most economists calculate and creates an economic boon to middle and lower income earners. Sure to be controversial, The Growth Experiment Revisited is essential reading for anyone looking to understand the arguments at the heart of this most fractious of American policy debates

Conspiracies of the ruling class : how to break their grip forever by Lawrence B Lindsey( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An audacious and desperately needed primer on how America's Ruling Class have upended the Constitution and taken over our country--and how we must unite to regain control of our liberty. A Ruling Class have emerged in America against the hopes and designs of our Founding Fathers. Over the last hundred years, they have rejected the Constitution and expanded their own power, slowly at first and now rapidly. These people believe their actions are justified because they think they are smarter than the rest of us--so smart they can run our lives better than we can. But for all the power and resources at their command, they have failed. Miserably. Society has become increasingly unequal, even as we're promised "equality." Our government finances are out of control, our basic infrastructure is broken, and education is unaffordable and mediocre. And yet the Ruling Class think the solution is for us to grant them ever more control. We can stop this--but to do so we must unite. In Conspiracies of the Ruling Class, Lawrence Lindsey lays out his plan for how we can use common sense to change the way our country is run. Finally, here is the truth from a Washington insider about how to reawaken the spirit upon which America was founded, with liberty for every person to pursue his or her own dreams"--

Tax induced trading : the effect of the 1986 Tax Reform Act on stock market activity by Paul J Bolster( )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The abolition of the favorable tax treatment of long term capital gains forced investors to reassess traditional year-end trading strategies used to manage tax liabilities. This study compares with year-end trading behavior in previous years with that observed at the end of 1986. Traditional strategies involve selling both short and long term losers and holding short and long term winners. Our results affirm previous findings concerning tax induced trading at year end. However, for 1986, we find that the anticipated tax code changes had a powerful effect on trading behavior. Compared to previous years, relative trading volume was considerably higher in December of 1986 for long term winners and lower for long term losers. Additional results indicate that traditional patterns of trading induced by short term capital gains and losses were also altered substantially in 1986
The effect of the Treasury proposal on charitable giving : a comparison of constant and variable elasticity models by Lawrence B Lindsey( )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent proposal for tax reform developed by the Department of the Treasury suggests dramatic changes in the structure of the personal income tax. One likely side effect of the changes will be a significant adverse impact on the level of charitable contributions by individuals. This paper evaluates the marginal effect on giving of various parts of the Treasury reform plan using the existing literature on the price and income elasticities of charitable behavior. Two explicit models are simulated for 1985 using the NBER TAXSIM model: one with constant price and income elasticities and one with the price and income elasticities varying with income
Federal deductibility of state and local taxes : a test of public choice by representative government by Lawrence Lindsey( )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper considers the impact of federal deductibility on the level and composition of state and local taxes. It also considers the importance of deductibility in determining the vote of state Congressional delegations on the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Particular emphasis should be placed on the mechanism by which voter preferences are translated into public choices. Alternative measures of tax price are considered; each represents a different model of voter behavior. The paper concludes that tax levels are determined by an equal weighting of voters, not by a planning mechanism which minimizes the cost of revenue statewide. It also concludes that the issue of state and local deductibility played a negligible role in determining Congressional votes on the recent tax reform bill
Alternatives to the current maximum tax on earned income by Lawrence Lindsey( )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maximum Tax on Personal Service Income was intended to reduce the maximum marginal tax rate on earned income to 50 percent. In general it did not achieve this result, although it did lower marginal tax rates on both earned and unearned income. This paper considers the effect of different tax rate structures on the total tax revenue collected from high income taxpayers. The sensitivity of tax avoidance practices to marginal tax rates is estimated using four different specifications. These estimates are then combined with plausible parameter values for income and substitution effects in the supply of labor to produce a range of elasticities of taxable income with respect to tax rates. The NBER Taxsim model is then used to estimate the effects of different rate structures on tax revenue
Simulating nonlinear tax rules and nonstandard behavior : an application to the tax treatment of charitable contributions by Martin S Feldstein( )

4 editions published between 1981 and 1985 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines how the tax simulation method can be extended to incorporate nonlinear budget constraints and nonstandard economic behavior. We simulate the effect of extending the charitable deduction to nonitemizers and study the effect of alternative "floors". The specific simulations indicate that the econometric evidence on charitable giving implies that extending the charitable deduction to nonitemizers would raise individual giving by about 12 percent of the existing total amount or $4.5 billion at 1977 levels. The extension would reduce tax revenue by slightly less, about $4.1 billion. A floor of $300 or 3 percent of AGI would reduce the revenue loss by 30 to 40 percent, even if there is significant bunching. The effect of the floor on increased giving depends critically on whether taxpayers' behavior is guided by conventional demand principles or by the net altruism rule. A reasonable conclusion is that a floor would reduce giving by less than the increased revenue but that the difference between them would not be very large

The third episode in a 3 part series exploring the changing economic world in the 20th century: the clash between governments and the marketplace, the debate over the impact of globalization, and the forces shaping future economies. This episode tracks the global economy through the 1990s to the present. The focus is on American policy as both political parties embrace unfettered globalization over the objections of organized labor. Internet-linked financial markets, unrestricted capital flows and floating currencies drive levels of speculative investments while entrepreneurs create multinational corporations. As popular unease grows that the system is just too complex to be controled new opposition to globalization forms as the gap widens further between rich and poor
