Red, White, and Due: Talking Taxes with Vanessa Williamson What Could Go Right?

    • Society & Culture

Why do people hate taxes but seem proud to pay them? When did taxation in the US become such a lightning rod issue? And are American feelings about taxes unique? Today Zachary and Emma talk to Vanessa Williamson, senior fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution and a senior fellow at the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center. The discussion weaves through taxation, redistribution, and political participation.

What Could Go Right? is produced by The Progress Network and The Podglomerate.
