Description

The authors of this seminal book explain how governments can neutralize taxes that nurture the ethics of casino economy. They analyze Asia's meltdown, explain how mighty Japan was tolled by land speculation, and predict the consequences if statesmen fail to banish deadweight taxes. The challenge of the Millennium is to empower people to convert a legacy of trillion-dollar losses into the riches that would finance the social and environmental needs of all nations in the 21st century.
