    Very interesting, ta. Any idea what the threshold for the 70% tax was set at (I can't open the pdf on my phone)?
    They got the threshold by optimizing the tradeoff between increased deadweight burden at the income level and the increased revenue from all higher levels. It came out as $300,000.
