The Case for a Flat Tax

Mitchell is one of the nation's leading experts on tax reform and supply-side tax policy, and he knows how to explain the politics and complexities of tax policy in easy-to-understand terms. As former Presidential candidate Steve Forbes said of Mitchell's 1996 book, The Flat Tax: Freedom, Fairness, Jobs, and Growth, "Mitchell marvelously demonstrates how the flat tax will rip away the principal source of political pollution in Washington."
Mitchell also is the nation\'s leading opponent of tax harmonization schemes developed by the Brussels-based European Union, the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and the United Nations. His September 2000 analysis of the OECD's "harmful tax competition" initiative was the opening salvo in a campaign to shift the position of the United States government and thus stymie international proposals to persecute low-tax jurisdictions.
