And, While I'm At It...

There's been a lot of chatter on tch-econ, a listserv devoted primarily to the teaching of economics, about "tax emancipation day"--the average date at which we become free of the "burden" of taxation.

What I learned from that chatter is how many of the people on that listserv apparently think government is inherently bad or, for that matter, evil. I learned nothing about the value of aclculating a "tax emancipation day."
