Len Burman, Paul Volcker Chair in Behavioral Economics, was interviewed for the Atlantic article, "The United States Is Already a Low-Tax Country." "We’re on the hook for a lot more spending in the years to come," says Burman. "It makes some sense to fund that rising spending obligation with a [value-added tax on goods]. But Republicans won’t even consider it." 12/13/1
