The Future Is Flat

A quote from George Trefgarne in The Daily Telegraph, 29 August 2005

if Germany adopts a flat-tax structure, it could actually be tougher to resist it than to advocate it. [...] there is a curious inevitability to the idea, just as Ken Clarke and his friends used to claim there was to the euro. Only, unlike the single currency, the flat tax is a triumph for democracy and keeps winning elections - in Poland, Greece, Russia and elsewhere.
