Flat tax

If the government wants the economy to thrive without the recklessness or extremes between rich and poor that dogged the 19th and early 20th century, the way to go is a flat income tax of maybe 20 per cent — 10 per cent provincial and 10 per cent federal — and moderate sales tax with fewer exemptions.
