Synopsis: The definitive book on the Fairtax and its potential to save the U.S. economy

In the century since it was created, the federal income tax system has grown into a monster that threatens the well-being of average citizens and business owners as well as the very foundations of our economy and our democracy.

But there's a better alternative: the FairTax. Its supporters argue that the federal government should stop taxing what goes into the economy-earnings, savings, and investments-and start taxing what comes out: consumption. The result would be the same amount of revenue but more growth, much less political corruption, and a far healthier relationship between Americans and their government.

Ken Hoagland of the FairTax Institute is an expert on this grassroots movement, and his book offers the clearest explanation of this revolutionary idea. He details the history of income tax collection in this coun­try and current lobbying practices that have bloated the tax code to 67,500 pages of irrational regulations.

Anyone who has ever shuddered as April 15 approaches or who simply cares about making the country better will be fascinated by Hoagland's research and conclusions.
