    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    For most people, tax is something we pay, simply because we must. We seldom think much more about it; in fact, tax is something we'd rather forget. 

    But the reality is that tax is the key to power. No government can survive without tax revenue - it is the fuel that every state, large and small, runs on. Many of the problems we face today, not least the enormous wealth gaps between rich and poor and between generations, can be traced back to our systems of tax. If you tax windows, many will sacrifice their daylight. If you tax cigarettes, some people will choose not to smoke; others will take up smuggling. Tax companies too much and many will relocate offshore.

    In Daylight Robbery, Dominic Frisby offers an alternative vision of a system that is as old as civilisation itself. It will take you on a whirlwind journey through the history of taxation, from ancient Mesopotamia right up to the present day, explaining the key dynamics of taxation around the world and arguing that governments are going to have to radically change who they tax and how if they are to succeed in the future.

    Fantastic

    The content was great, and Frisby brings it to life with his narration. I intend to purchase the physical book to read it again!

    Outstanding!

    I love it when a author narrates his own work. Usually no one else is as enthusiastic as they are about it. I believe he is right on the majority of points he makes at the end. I dont think I will see any of it in my time though.

    Brilliant narrative on how tax has shaped our life

    This book provides key understanding on how taxes evolve and have shaped our society and continue to do so.

    I however disagree somewhat with his idea of Utopia because he didnt elaborate on the role of central banks and government, since central banks have for the last century allowed government to spend more than the taxes they collect deepening inequality through inflation. Just fixing tax policy alone without reigning in central banks ability to create money from nothing will only fix half the problem leaving the rot to fester until we reach today's circumstances again, both have to be fixed together or else it will eventually come apart.

    90% of a great book.

    All but the last Chapter was very informative and based on logical evidence, the last chapter was the downside. After just writing every other chapter, exposing how taxation has caused many issues in society, the last chapter was more of a brainfart. Insanity is doing something that has been proven bad, over and over again, then expecting different results trying it again. Taxation is a euphemism for extortion.

    Unterhaltsam, informativ und anregend

    Dominic Frisby ist etwas besonderes: Er verdient sein Geld einerseits mit witzig-Sein und andererseits mit kundigen Kommentaren zu ökonomischen Themen. Obendrein ist er politisch ein ziemlich libertärer Zeitgenosse. Das macht ihn zu einer ungewöhnlichen Mischung, die überraschende Ideen verspricht. Ich finde, er ist ein einzigartig gut geeigneter Mann, um ein Buch über Steuern zu schreiben. Im Buch erfährt man eine Menge über die Geschichte der Steuern, und wie Steuern die Geschichte beeinflusst, ja geprägt haben. Frisby webt immer wieder unterhaltsame, dramatische Geschichte ein, die das ganze Material kurzweilig sein lassen. Am Ende entwickelt er seine eigenen Ideen, die ich so noch nie gehört habe. Es ist alles sehr gut recherchiert und durchdacht, soweit ich das als kundiger Laie beurteilen kann. Für die Qualität des Buches bürgt, dass ich mich immer darauf gefreut habe, wenn ich endlich weiterhören konnte. Frisby liest sein Buch selbst, und hier merkt man, dass er ein professioneller Comedian ist: Er macht das ausgezeichnet.
