Adam Smith and Taxation
Excellent diary over at Daily Kos by bay of arizona. The subject is Adam Smith and progressive taxation which Smith favored. Smith has a lot more to say in support of progressive ideas than he does in support of conservative ideas, at least the way those ideologies are shaped today. I would urge progressives to read "The Wealth of Nations". Attempting to incorporate Smith's ideas into a progressive ideology would be a huge benefit to progressives and to the world.
