it seems odd to me that all governments are indulging themselves with fiscal stimulus and intend to pay for it with higher future tax. do they not understand the affect of higher taxes on tax revenue. the laffer curve indicates a tax around 30% is the optimum for tax generation. so if taxes increase it will reduce tax revenue and take longer to pay off the debt. is this just an excuse to enable a larger government surely it would be logical to reduce tax to pay off the debt rather than increasing it. does any one else agree.
