The Pope On Taxes

by Dual Income No Kids on July 11, 2009 · 0 comments

Not being Catholic, I don’t usually pay a great deal of attention to the Pope. However, the Holy Pontiff is now advocating allowing individuals to decide how they want their tax money to be spent. Its an interesting idea, to be sure.

From his 2006 letter to the faithful.

One possible approach to development aid would be to apply effectively what is known as fiscal subsidiarity, allowing citizens to decide how to allocate a portion of the taxes they pay to the State. Provided it does not degenerate into the promotion of special interests, this can help to stimulate forms of welfare solidarity from below, with obvious benefits in the area of solidarity for development as well.

Heres the link to the letter.
