Not this again

Mike Moffatt is just the latest to engage in the thoroughly tiresome habit of painting a Nordic-model tax system as a panacea for reducing inequality while utterly ignoring the massive structural differences that make such a model work - not to mention the role that business and government have played in exacerbating those differences in North America.

But I'll challenge Moffatt and his cadre to embrace the full model. Please, please do start backing increased unionization rates and worker input into industrial policy - and then we can start taking the associated tax theory seriously.

Update: Also, what pogge said.
