    A Fine Mess [E–pub/Kindle] I read this book on the recommendation of my Goodreads friend Steve I may have otherwise passed it by expecting a dry technical tome In fact I enjoyed it and learned a great deal I used to imagine that Americans must understand most of the arcane shit in tax forms and the IRS booklets that are intended to explain everything but are totally impenetrable I always wanted to know about the tax system the various taxes and how it al

Reid Á 6 Read & download A Fine Mess A Global uest for a Simpler Fairer and More Efficient Tax System is insightful and thought provoking The current system cries out for reform but I foresee little chance of any genuine improvements to our obtuse and archaic tax code during an era of government paralysis Reid deserves Four Stars on the research and content and Two Stars for the facetious tone

Reid Á 6 Read & download Read & download º A Fine Mess 106 E Indeed the dysfunctional tax system has become a major cause of economic ineualityIn A Fine Mess T R Reid crisscrosses the globe in search of the exact solutions to these urgent problems With an uncanny knack for making a complex subject not just accessible but gripping he investigates what makes good taxation no that's not an oxymoron and brings that knowledge home where it is needed most Never talking down or reflexively siding with either wing of politics T R Reid presses the case for sensible root and branch reforms with a companionable ebullience This affects everyone Doing our taxes will never be America's favorite pastime but it can and should be so much easier and fairer. I received a free advanced reader s copy of this book from the publisher through GoodReads GiveawaysI actually laughed out loud at several portions of this book which is always a good sign when you re talking about a tome regarding taxes Considering that our tax code itself runs in excess of 70000 pages no that s not a typo Yes it caused a LOL when I read it this is a delightfully compact book explaining everything that s wrong with that code and how we might improve on it Using real world examples of what to try and what not to try Reid makes a strong case for an overhaul of the US tax system that everyone but Congress and the tax preparation services companies can get behind Will it happen Not a chance in hell But if you want some solid information to use to lobby your Congressman this is a great easily understandable place to start making your notes

Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Á T.R. Reid T.R. Reid Á 6 Read & download Read & download º A Fine Mess 106 New York Times bestelling author T R Reid travels around the world to solve the urgent problem of America's failing tax code unravelling a complex topic in plain English and telling a rollicking story along the way The US tax code is a total write off Crammed with loopholes and special interest provisions it works for no one except tax lawyers accountants and huge corporations Not for the first time we have reached a breaking point That happened in 1922 and again in 1954 and again in 1986 In other words every thirty two years Which means that the next complete overhaul is due in 2018 But what should be in this new tax code Can we make the US tax system simpler fairer and efficient. So I can t exactly recommend this book It is after all about taxes Taxes are boring everyone has unlettered and predictable opinions about them and the subject is endlessly abstruse But they re also very important Beyond clumsy suppositions about liberals favoring taxes and conservatives loathing them I found this account fascinating for revealing one of the few political areas of substance where conservative and liberal policy goals are consistent with each other It is in fact possible to raise money and lower tax rates We can lower the taxes on the richest not chase away corporations implement a VAT without it being regressive and do all of this while raising money and radically simplifying the nature of our byzantine tax code BBLR Suffice it to say it ll be interesting to wade into the promised tax reform debates and not immediately assume that our government is run by a cabal of greedy idiots intent on ruining anything good about this countryworld for plutocratic purposes I mean I ll probably end up that way but at least I can come in with an open mind and a lack of presumptions about what conservative policies do So if there s a fix out there then why not adopt it In a word politics And also a hefty dose of the ridiculous idea that American exceptionalism means everything we do contributes to us being the greatest rather than almost everything that we insist on doing differently has become an embarrassing albatross with nothing to justify it than convention and stubbornnessAnyway this book I gather is written by a freuent NPR commentator I kept getting surprised about how interesting the subject matter was but that s kind of what NPR does so well makes something mundane and boring into something worthy of exploration Hooray for taxes
