Abstract: There are two methods of lightening the pressure of those taxes which must be raised for the expenses of government; one, by lessening the expenditure; and the other, by so arranging taxation, that it shall press as lightly as possible on the tax payer. The first belongs to the department of politics; and this society, very properly, excludes all political discussion. The second belongs to that department of economic science which falls within our rules, and I propose to bring under consideration the relative advantages and disadvantages of indirect, as compared with direct, taxation; and to suggest a scheme of direct taxation, which would be equitable, would avoid the disadvantages, and combine the advantages of indirect taxation, without disturbing the present distribution of the burden.
