This episode I get to ask Trevor Tombe, an economist from the University of Calgary, to help me make sense of taxes in the face of political messaging. What is the point of the carbon tax? Should Alberta flirt with a PST as a means to reduce static taxes like income and corporate taxes? Should Alberta be looking to cut taxes in the face of the very real deficit between revenue and expenses we’re facing over the next twenty years? What are our options?
