Textbooks, Taxes, and Objectivity in Economics Instruction.
Fitzsimmons, Edward L.
Journal of Economic Education, v20 n3 p247-52 Sum 1989
Presents an example that illustrates the connection between taxation of private goods or services and provision of public goods or services. Demonstrates that the burdens of taxation in the private sector can in theory be offset by gains in consumer surplus in the public sector, providing a more balanced view than can be found in many introductory economics textbooks.
