Application Details

In bilateral trade, the governments of both trading parties may want to collect a tax on any gains from the trade. One of the basic principles of an efficient model of taxation is that tax laws should be a tax-neutral set of rules that neither discourage or encourage any particular activity. To this effect, U.S. tax laws are designed based on the following three standards 1.) capital-import neutrality, 2.) capital-export neutrality, and 3.) national neutrality. Please submit a 400 word essay how the U.S. tax system accomplishes these goals, and in what ways, if any, that it does not.
