1% Tax Solution The 1% Solution is true tax reform in the 21st century. The book will revolutionize the way we pay taxes.

I have come to believe this is the book's crowning achievement. Imagine the economic system of America contained inside a huge fifty story building. The first floor contains the wages of working Americans, consumer spending, mortgage payments, and so forth.

It is shared by those concerned with public financing of development--the fiscal crisis of the state as well as the growing need for international cooperation on problems such as the environment, poverty, peace and security. This work makes a systematic analysis of the proposal...
