Death in the Economists’ Voice

The Economists’ Voice has just published an accessible write-up of my work with Andrew Leigh on the impact of the removal of estate taxes on deaths. As regular readers know, we found that the abolition of such taxes in Australia in 1979 lead to the delay in the death of about half of eligible payors. The new article is written with the coming abolition of such taxes in the US in 2010 in mind.
