New video from Dan Mitchell on Capital Gains Tax

May 13, 2010 4:01 PM

In a new video, Dan Mitchell from the Centre for Freedom and Prosperity looks at the problems with capital gains tax.  While there are some differences in the UK, the basic message applies here too.  The capital gains tax imposes additional taxation on the saving and investment we should be encouraging.
