Stephen Smith's new book on taxation, published by Oxford University Press (OUP), is now available. It is the second book that he has written for the OUP "Very Short Introduction" series with the first, "Environmental Economics", being published in 2011. The "Very Short Introduction" series are a highly regarded selection of introductory texts written to familiarise readers with highly challenging topics in a brief yet comprehensive manner.
In this publication Stephen Smith explains the balance that tax policy makers have to strike between the effects on citizens and those on the economy. He argues that a more comprehensive understanding of the nature of tax policy, and the role and effects of different taxes, would aid public decisions on these issues.
