Great article Professor & Judge. I think this is one of the most pragmatic analysis devoid of political shouting that i have seen in a long time.

My point is that tax reforms has to start with the basic question. What is income? With the lower capital gains tax and dividend tax, government has created a class system in income and thus we are seeing a proliferation of loopholes and flight of income to capital gains (thru ESOPs). Instead of different rates, why not adopt the same rate and once the tax revenue hits a particular % of GDP (let's say 20%), the overall tax rate for all reduces.

Between income classes & tax loopholes, they create the complexity of the American tax laws. Simplify it and most of the country will benefit from it
