Emmanuel Saez on Tax Compliance - Dictionary of Arguments
Saez I 47
Tax Compliance/Saez/Zucman: what makes taxation work is more than a simple tax code and diligent auditors. It’s a belief system: shared convictions in the benefits of collective action (the notion that we are more prosperous when we pool resources together instead of acting in isolation), in government’s central role in organizing this collective action, and in the merits of democracy. When this belief system prevails, even the most progressive tax system can work._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
