EconGuy Videos: Do the Rich Pay Too Much in Taxes?

We keep hearing that the wealthy pay a disproportionate share of our taxes. Do the rich pay too much tax? We can't answer that question without looking at how income is distributed. It turns out that tax payments are unequal because income is unequal. Even if we taxed everyone at exactly the same rate, the rich would still have huge tax payments - because they're the ones making the most income.

EconGuy Videos: the Laffer Curve

Rating
0.0 stars

Can the government actually increase tax revenues by cutting tax rates? A lot of politicians - and even some economists - seem to think so. The idea is that the tax cut will spur so much economic growth that tax revenues increase despite the lower rate. It's an idea known to economists as the Laffer Curve. But is that true? EconGuy looks at the numbers, and then at recent U.S. experience with tax cuts, tax increases, and revenues.

What is the debt ceiling that we keep hearing about? For that matter, what is the federal debt, where does it come from, and how big is it? Does the debt limit actually limit the debt? What would happen if Congress failed to raise the debt ceiling? And what does the debt limit have to do with tight pants?

How are economics and the environment related? The quick answer is that environmental quality is a worthy goal, but there is an economic trade-off: a clean environment does not come without costs.

First comes love…then comes taxes? A look at how tax law influences the decision to get married
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Can your country’s tax laws help you find true love? A research team based in Europe has found that a government’s tax scheme surrounding marriage could affect a couple’s decision to tie the knot. The majority of countries across the globe have a tax code that changes according to marital status -- usually in the form of either a tax penalty or tax bonus. With a penalty, a couple will end up paying more in taxes than two similarly compensated single individuals, and with a bonus, they will pay less. To get to the heart of whether the financial implications connected to such tax laws influence a couple’s desire to get married, the researchers applied a rigorous theoretical model they called the marriage proposal game. In the game, two potential spouses – Sam and Robin – can either get married, live together without formal marriage, or break up..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.
