Progressive tax doesn't work

Stensson
Romanii

1st round is acceptance I will argue that progressive tax is not fair, nor does it work in the long run. This debate is not related to any specific country. Progressive tax - a tax in which the tax rate increases as the taxable amount increases. The alternative option is flat tax. Starting from round 2 all rounds are free form meaning statements along with rebuttals. Good luck!...

His book "Population Bomb" started in this manner: "The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. At this late date nothing can preve...

This is how we should view this debate, the poor depend on the better-off, better-established rich class to survive and prosper, therefore we should tax the rich more than the other classes (progressive tax)...
