Tax Scholar James Puckett presented to Texas A&M University's Law faculty his recent scholarship examining equity issues relating to the distribution of wealth and income, and the impact of the tax system thereupon.
Prof. James Puckett (Penn State) opened his presentation with a Stephen Colbert quote: “I make serious coin. But I’m middle class. I just happen to be upper elite platinum plus middle class.”
In his working draft for the presentation, Prof. Puckett described a variety of approaches, some familiar and some novel, and some more administratively challenging than others.
