Here’s a great idea from Amity Shlaes:
Suggestion: Postpone the tax talk, and, instead, push the candidates on bailouts. Force them to declare whether they consider themselves to be “Austrian” or neo-Keynesian.” Let them say whether, come the next crisis, they’d wing it, à la Hank Paulson, or actually put forward a plan. Clear the air on 2008, and there will be trust enough for tax reform. But the best pledge for this election round is a “No Bailout” pledge.
