The Final Version of Budgetonomics is Up


The final version of Budgetonomics is here! You will find two new chapters:

You’ll find two new chapters:

  • Historical charts: charts on public finance going all the way back to 1970. You’ll find charts on how we – individuals, as opposed to companies,  now account for  20% of taxes, up from 5% in 1970. And much more!
  • Avoid the DDT: If you have been looking for income on your mutual funds which buy debt (so are a little more secure than equity), then the new dividend distribution tax rule (of 25%) will hurt you. But you can achieve the same income by using a systematic withdrawal plan and pay far lower tax: Check out the detailed article and analysis in the ebook.

The e-Book is now 65 pages long.
