The VAT Reader: What a Federal Consumption Tax Would Mean for America

Noticed this from a financial blog. The book is free: PDF and hardcopy. Not a recommendation, but there are some forum members interested in VAT.

Unfortunately, MichaelB, there are forum members interested in more taxes of all kinds...

These are some consecutive chapter titles:

Bruce Bartlett
The Conservative Case for a VAT

Douglas Holtz-Eakin
The Case Against VAT

Jane G. Gravelle
The Distributional Case Against a VAT

Michael J. Graetz
VAT as the Key to Real Tax Reform

The apparent even-handedness makes the book appealing to me.

Westernskies, some people don't limit their reading to like-minded topics, views or authors.

You might be interested to know that I'm reading:

"Born Liberal, Raised Right"by Reb Bradley.

Highly recommend it for an open-minded bibliophile like you.
