Three famous economists - Arthur B. Laffer, Ph.D., Stephen Moore, and Erwin J. Antoni, Ph.D - present their new paper for The Heartland Institute titled "Will the Last Taxpayer in Illinois Please Turn Out the Lights: An Economic Assessment of the Illinois ‘Fair Tax’." The report: https://www.heartland.org/_template-assets/documents/10-28-20%20FairTaxReport.pdf This video is just 15 minutes of highlights of their remarks. See the full 52-minute presentation here: https://youtu.be/81tQdY0mAI8 The economists’ research says passage of the so-called "Fair Tax" ballot initiative, which voters will decide on November 3, would:  hit small businesses with annual profits as low as $250,000;  slow job growth by an estimated 566,000 over the next decade, effectively eliminating about one in 10 current jobs;  result in 1.4 million people leaving Illinois for better economic opportunities, setting outmigration from Illinois at about nine times faster than the current alarming rate;  reduce the state's GDP by $20.5 billion over the next decade;  reduce home value appreciation by about 10.4 percent over the next decade;  make Illinois one of the five highest tax jurisdictions in the world, with only New Jersey and some Third World nations having a higher tax on corporations.
