We previously have blogged Susan Pace Hamill's scholarship on the application of Christian principles to tax policy:
Susan recently has published several op-eds on the subject:
Susan's colleague Dan Filler notes:
Susan and I probably disagree on many things but her passion and commitment are incredible, and her emphasis on religious claims to shape tax policy debates is brilliant. The Economist captured her campaign in support of Alabama tax reform with the headline "What Would Jesus Tax?" Democrats may be able to retake the White House without fully engaging policy debates within a genuinely religious framework. But they won't win states like Alabama. And that will leave Democrats perpetually vulnerable.
I don't know where Susan stands, party-wise, but she is providing an important roadmap for a national progressive strategy. Not bad for a tax jock. Not bad at all.
