Erik Brynjolfsson agrees: Carbon Tax

Professor at MIT

If we're willing to send half a million fellow citizens into battle, to protect oil supplies and our economic way of life, we should be no less willing to make the small sacrifice of paying more for gasoline. A revenue-neutral plan that reduced Social Security taxes by $1 billion for every penny a gallon of gas tax would leave the working poor and middle class better off than before. In the long term, the whole country would benefit from reducing the hidden tax of pollution, congestion and dependence on foreign oil.
