Re: Edward Kleinbard

Edward Kleinbard was quoted on how to distribute taxes across income group. He commented on Messrs. Saez and Zucman’s book on this topic. "Book is best appreciated as a window into the burdens imposed at the very top end and there, of course, the book is devastating” in showing low tax rates, said Kleinbard. “It’s simply not asking or answering the separate question, which is: What is the net well-being of America’s lowest-income people?"
