I try not to be too political in this space, but I’m glad to see a fair amount of balanced (or at least investigative rather than speculative) pieces being written about the issues dominating the upcoming presidential elections.
This past week the New York Times ran a long, but very interesting piece on the economic policy proposals of the Obama campaign and Obama’s approach to tax policy in general. It’s very worth reading. I imagine that anyone other than the closest followers of the campaigns will learn something.
As a follow up, here’s where you can calculate how the Obama or McCain tax policy proposals would impact your taxes. You might be surprised.
