Why Taxes Are Harmful: A Response to The Woke Salaryman

Source: Foundation for Economic Education

“A Singapore-based webcomic called The Woke Salaryman recently posted a comic extolling the virtues of taxation and encouraging people to pay their taxes. The comic, called ‘Why are taxes important?’ goes through three common talking points about the supposed benefits of taxation and public services. Since these same points come up so frequently in debates over taxation, it’s worth taking the time to respond to them in turn.” (03/17/23)
