Peter G. Peterson Foundation

Taxes Primer

“Our mission is to increase public awareness of the nature and urgency of key fiscal challenges threatening America’s future and to accelerate action on them. To address these challenges successfully, we work to bring Americans together to find and implement sensible, long-term solutions that transcend age, party lines and ideological divides in order to achieve real results.” (Peter G. Peterson Foundation)

Harvard University

Justice

“JUSTICE is the first Harvard course to be made freely available online and on public television. Nearly a thousand students pack Harvard’s historic Sanders Theatre to hear Michael Sandel, “perhaps the most prominent college professor in America,” (Washington Post) talk about justice, equality, democracy, and citizenship.” (Harvard University’s Justice with Michael Sandel)

See, in particular, episodes 3 and 4 which deal with taxation.
