On Saturday night, Craig and I attneded the University of Wisconsin Founders' Day dinner here in Dallas. Along with meeting some cool alumni from the area, we had the pleasure of hearing a keynote from the Dean of the Business School, Michael Knetter. His presentation was on the economy (big surprise). But I found the most interesting tidbit came from his Q+A:
"We need to tax more on the things we need less of and less on the things we need more of." This was said specifically in reference to taxation on carbon fuels VS finance and income generation.
So simple and yet...
