Daylight Robbery: How Tax Shaped Our Past and Will Change Our Future µ Out the ages why at one stage we paid tax for daylight or for growing a beard Ranging from the despotic to the absurd the tax laws of the past reveal so much about how we got to where we are today and what we can do to build a system fit for the future'This entertaining surprising contrarian book is a tour de force' Matt Ridley author of The Evolution of Everything'In this spectacular gallop through history Frisby shows how taxation has warped stunted and thwarted human progress I bought this book not knowing anything about the author as it is a subject that interests me and a subject I know a lot probably too much about The first part was an easy and amusing read through the history of tax much better than those historians that invent technicalities to complicate the past I kept it by the toilet and read a bit at a time Then got to the last few chapters and thought Wow this guy has something good to say is creative and mostly right I took it away and finished it Then looked up Mr Frisby on youtube Great interviewer does not interupt unlike BBCs etc Caswell was brilliant Why cant he be in charge of Newsnight instead of a pair of legs A land reform tax would be great from a start up but will never get through over here so I have to regard it as a UK fantasy But there is within 100 miles of London a society build on just that Land Tax with no VAT no other taxes and needs no accountants to do tax returns Its called Sark What could work here though is small reforms to VAT that does not have to be regressive planning income tax and NI You cannot effect major change in our system I have set out such reforms in publications that were read by Mum and have had some articles published in stuff nobody reads Although the ideas are fairly simple they just go over peoples heads who are caught up in their own these days complicated worlds full of competing information Mr Frisby makes a good point that unless you do something stupid you dont stand out I am still trying But five stars for Mr F eBook Æ How Tax Shaped Our Past and Will Change Our Future ì Dominic Frisby

Dominic Frisby ì Daylight Robbery: How Tax Shaped Our Past and Will Change Our Future reader Death and taxes are our inevitable fate We've been told this since the beginning of civilisation But what if we stopped to uestion our antiuated system? Is it fair? And is it capable of serving the needs of our rapidly changing modern society? In Daylight Robbery Dominic Frisby traces the origins of taxation from its roots in the ancient world through to today He explores the role of tax in the formation of our global religions the part tax played in wars and revolutions through Mr Frisby's book is easy to read and light on jargon I've read fairly widely on financial history and this is a book that I've been waiting for without knowing it Few writers I've come across combine an ability to tell a good historical tale with a down to earth economic understanding of the forces at play The tax stories of the French Revolution and the American Civil War were especially rewarding What impressed me most about this book was the way the author was able to be highly critical of Western governments without demonising them Illuminating the historical paths that have led to their current hapless condition enables an even handed and compassionate treatment I'm not sure about the author's libertarian ideology but his outline of the ongoing battle between the tech giants and government over taxation is well worth the read Recommended
