Tax Rates in Perspective

Just a dose of reality, for those of you still in the mood for such things. In a list of 34 of the most economically developed countries in the world, the US has the fifth lowest tax rate. Three of the four lower are Mexico, Turkey, and Chile - with per capita incomes of about $15,000 or less. Those hardly seem like good models for what Americans aspire to.

Ron, we may need to pay more taxes but you know this is not a good argument. Since most of the world does not allow women to do anything of substance, would you use a graph like this to show that we should regress in women's rights?
