In some of my earliest articles, from two years ago, I provided various methods of looking at the relationship between taxes and the economy. One of the more interesting themes I kept seeing from conservatives in response was this: if this is true, why on earth haven’t we heard it from more authoritative sources? I suggested that, until recently, it was hard to do the analysis, simply because of access to the data and the tools necessary to analyze them.
Regardless of the reasons, this Business Insider article corroborates much of what I was saying back then. Apparently, the non-partisan Congressional Research Service agrees with me.
For what it’s worth.
