S. Douglas Hopkins (Kestrel Consulting), Factual Distortions Derail Productive Debate on Tax Reform, 135 Tax Notes 1518 (June 18, 2012):
Public understanding of U.S. tax policy is characterized by grossly flawed and distorted facts that effectively derail productive dialogue about potential reform alternatives. Hyperpartisan debate built on erroneous facts and assumptions offers mutually flawed options and false choices. Progress toward broadly shared prosperity and growth can best be obtained by illuminating the underlying facts and reconciling the conflict between them and the dogmatic hyperbole of opposing positions.
