Continuously Variable Progressive Income Tax

Posted on May 12, 2020 in Economics

Knowing next to nothing about Economics, despite being an Econ Undergrad, this is a thing I thought. Probably not original. If you are going to have a progressive tax system, instead of having tax cliffs, give every dollar its own tax rate.

I have a Shoei RF-1200 head. The RF-1200 in an XL is the best fitting and most comfortable helmet I have owned, yet when my lovely all white RF-1200 with its extremely cool Mass Effect and Destiny the Game stickers was due for replacement, my eyes started …
