Milton Friedman on tax cuts

 

Tax cuts, returning money to the people who earned it, is a good thing. Keeping money in the private productive sector and out of government should be the general goal. The trend in the 20th Century was toward ever creeping statism. The trend in the 21st should be toward freeing the economy and The People from the state.

It won’t happen overnight, just as the superstate didn’t happen overnight. But technology and awareness could move things in a new direction with effort and care. It is our responsibility to see that this is the way forward.
