Things have finally settled down at home and at work, and I have published most of my unfinished essays (and decided to abandon several that proved less promising than I thought), so I intend to start on a project I have long intended to undertake. In the spirit of Hazlitt's "Failure of the 'New Economics'", I intend to go chapter by chapter through "the book", the holy scripture of the FairTax movement, and analyze the arguments, good and bad, and publish my thoughts in this blog. I am not sure if I will do it one post per chapter, several chapters per post, or all at once, we will have to see how long each chapter proves.
In addition, I have the text of the associated law, or rather bill, and I will cite it when needed to clarify the text in "the book". In addition, should the bill itself prove either sufficiently different from the book, or prove to have a lot of added details, then I may follow up with a similar in depth analysis of the bill. But, for now, I only intend to use it as a supplement. We shall have to see if it goes beyond that.
I am not sure when I will start, but since I have been posting pretty irregularly, I figured it was time to finally undertake this project. If only to make up for the dearth of material recently.
