A New Principle of Just Taxation

  • Knut Wicksell
Part of the International Economic Association Series book series (IEA)


I have intentionally given this essay a somewhat challenging title and, from the outset, I have taken up a rather heterodox position in opposition to the traditional doctrines. However, the essay contains not so much a new principle of just taxation, than a method to ensure that such measure of justice as can be attained is in fact achieved in practice.
