Best of BS Opinion: The Truss fallacy, confident despite infighting & more


Ad P

The disaster of former British Prime Minister Liz Truss’ “low taxes, high growth” framework proves that there is no clear relationship between income tax rates and economic growth. Wealthier economies tend to be relatively highly taxed because they pay for expansive welfare programmes. The successful Asian economies without comparable safety nets tend to have smaller governments and lower levels of deficits in relation to GDP than other economies. All of this suggests that the size of government rather than the peak tax rate is more material for economic growth.
