A National Sales Tax would require them to pay more out of pocket towards food or services, reducing their monthly income. However, the National Sales Tax could reverse this problem by enticing individuals and families to consume less This will allow them to not only build savings but also lower the cost of goods and services because there will be less of a demand for them. The individuals of the United States will ultimately benefit from a decrease in the cost of goods and services regardless of their income status. In conclusion, there have been many arguments about the effects of a National Sales Tax. Those who oppose it say that it is too risky, causing harm the economy, significant job-loss and burden those that cannot afford necessities.
The United States has been facing some of the worst economic times since the Great Depression in the 1930’s. One option to fix the economy is to change the corporate tax rate. To lower it or to raise it, that is the question about which economists have been speculating. America's high corporate tax rate and the worldwide system of taxation discourages U.S. companies from repatriating their foreign-source profits (Camp). There is a controversy about whether lowering or raising corporate tax rates will help American businesses and the United States government, lowering corporate taxes will create more jobs in corporations while raising taxes will create more jobs in the bureaucracy, However is it pointless to worry about taxes if loopholes can be found so that businesses do not have to pay any tax.
My topic is the increase if the taxes which Clinton Administration is planning. This increase in taxes will target "multinational Corporations, end the favored tax treatment of extra long term bonds", It will also raise capital gains taxes by “changing the rules for computing the cost basis of securities when they are sold at a profit”. What this will do is increase the taxes for the rich and will decrease the difference between the rich and the poor. The plan is intent on cutting the middle class tax and finance higher education (yeah right). The current tax law decreases the Federal Treasury Revenue and makes the economy less efficient or less competitive.
Bartavia has two means by which it can conduct an expansionary fiscal policy to promote even lower levels of unemployment thru economic growth. To do this the government can either cut taxes or increase spending increasing the money supply for consumers. However, one of the Ten Principles of Economics is that society faces a short-run trade-off between inflation and unemployment. Therefore, to reduce unemployment in the short-run, Batavia will have to increase inflation. Aside from inflation, there are also other risks related to executing an expansionary fiscal policy that only targets unemployment.
If the Federal rate goes up, there will be less spending which ... ... middle of paper ... ...ll have some immediate consequences on the economy, but I believe that these will even out in the short term as our country begins to get back on its feet. A budget that reduces spending will enable us to begin to pay back some of our national debt, which will increase the value of our currency in the world markets. This will in turn give more buying power for our dollar, reducing inflation, and increasing the likelihood of more investing. As you can see, everything starts at the top. If the federal government will straighten themselves out, the rest of the country will follow along.

The millionaire tax and the Buffett rule would be imposed in order to redistribute wealth to the lower classes. These people can afford and increase in tax, and it would have a minimal impact in the future.

Although it does cost the middle and lower classes more, most people would be unaffected as they may not be over the cap for these deductions.
After analyzing the data and the theory, we have provided our conclusion weather tax cut is better for the stimulation of growth or Government spending is? This report explains the big macroeconomic debates of the present times. It seeks to explore the debate within fiscal policy itself between tax cuts and government spending.

The tax cut may though increase the wealth of recipients but they may not spend money due to low marginal propensity to consume.
Thus the cuts would be only a temporary cure for the endangered economy. The two sides of Bush’s budget plans may disagree so much as to not let his plan pass. This could cause chaos for a while within the United States but in the end economists might agree that we’re better off because Bush’s plans may lay waste to an established system that has made the United States the number one world power for so long. Whether or not Bush’s budget and tax cut plans pass it will be a radical time in the history of the United States. The cuts may save a floundering economy or bring it to it’s knees.

When the Central Bank uses expansionary monetary policy, the money supply increases whilst the interest rates fall. This is because when money is readily available in the economy due to monetary expansion, the interest rates will fall due to the fact that people will be more willing to make loans as oppose to taking out loans. Reduced interest rates will cause domestic financial and capital assets to become less attractive as a result of their lower real rates of return. In addition to this, foreigners will reduce their position in domestic bonds, real estate, stocks and other assets. The financial account with deteriorate as a result of foreigners holding fewer domestic assets.
