The corrupted tobacco economists network - Part 40. More corrections by the Tobacco Institute

Overview of previous posts here

Dedicated taxes: new ways of shearing old sheep

The attack on taxes is illustrated in a 23 p. literature study “Dedicated Taxes: New ways of shearing old sheep" written in 1991 by Robert D. Tollison and Richard E. Wagner

The paper's front page once again highlighted both authors were members of the Center for Study of Public Choice at George Mason.

Nowhere did the paper mention the Tobacco Institute carefully read the text and even changed it where they deemed appropriate. This was not a text written by an independent academic.
