Combined with a pro-big business dominant political ideology and the reformation of the federal government's revenue stream, Mellon's tax cut on the wealthy and big corporations encouraged greater investment by wealthy individuals and big companies.

He was the United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom and United States Secretary of the Treasury from March 9, 1921 to February 12, 1932. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is named in his honor, as is the 378-foot US Coast Guard Cutter Mellon.

Andrew Mellon was the Secretary of the Treasury in the 1920s. During his tenure at the treasury the country was prosperous, and it was an economic boom time for the country. We were paying of debts from WW I, vice going further into debt.

This book gives his policies that were presented originally in articles in the press. As stated in the Book Description: The opening words are a classic summary of his tax policy: "The problem of the government is to fix rates which will bring in a maximum amount of revenue to the Treasury and at the same time bear not too heavily on the taxpayer or on business enterprises. A sound tax policy must take into consideration three factors. It must produce sufficient revenue for the government; it must lessen, so far as possible, the burden of taxation on those least able to bear it; and it must also remove those influences which might retard the continued steady development of business and industry on which, in the last analysis, so much of our prosperity depends. Furthermore, a permanent tax system should be designed, not merely for one or two years nor for the effect it may have on any given class of taxpayers but should be worked out with regard to conditions over a long period and with a view to its ultimate effect on the prosperity of the country as a whole. These are the principles on which the Treasury's tax policy is based, and any revision of taxes which ignores these fundamental principles will prove merely a makeshift and must eventually be replaced by a system based on economic rather than political considerations."

This is a timeless statement of principle, and I wish that all of our Secretaries of the Treasury, Presidents, and Congressmen would read and support this statement.

He was not interested in using the tax system for class warfare, he saw his job as raising the most money with the least damage to the taxpayers, as stated: "I have never viewed taxation as a means of rewarding one class of taxpayers or punishing another. If such a point of view ever controls our public policy, the traditions of freedom, justice and equality of opportunity, which are the distinguishing characteristics of our American civilization, will have disappeared and in their place we shall have class legislation with all of its attendant evils. The man who seeks to perpetuate prejudice and class hatred is doing America an ill service."

Unfortunately, I am afraid that we are going down the path of using tax policy to reward and punish selected classes of taxpayers in this country.

It amazes me after reading this book that we are struggling with many of the same issues nearly 100 years later with regards to taxes and the economy. Mellon laid out back in the 20's a long term tax policy that could work with small adjustments over time. The problem as he saw it then and as it is now is that proper appropriations of spending were not being followed, the tax rates encourage money to be placed in tax shelters removing that money from active positive use, many small taxes adversely affected everyone. A modern example would be Federal taxes on everyone's phone and cell phone bills, those taxes hit everyone and take millions out of the economy that could have been used to buy food, or other items which would increase production jobs thus increasing the overall tax base. The rates of tax he brought everything down to produce huge revenues at the most minimal interference with the general pocket money of the individual which again in turn increased the base.

Anyone interested in the current discussions on the IRS and the countries' tax system will find this book quite interesting. Many of the tax issues of the early 1900's are with us today. Great book, great price, and well worth reading.

As an economist he knew what he was talking about. His conservative approach to the economy was needed during that period of time in America's history. Not everyone agreed with him but at the time but history showed him as correct. Great book.

This book should be in every American's Library. It uses actual historical events to illustrate the way our economy works.

This was an outstanding commentary on how taxiation should work.The purpose of the book purchase was to look at Mellon's theory on taxiation. Andrew Mellon did a wonderful job in framing his economic opinion. There are many theories on this particular subject and this one needs to be reviewed by all that have any skin in this game. What was interesting is I pulled up taxiation data from Mellon's time, Kennedy, Reagan and George W. Bush. In every instance revenues went up. The unfortunate side was that often spending then rose faster. In the last year and 1/2 of Bush's presidency revenues were decreasing. It should be noted that we were sliding into a significant recession; the result of which people are still parcelling out blame. I would finish with this; I wish more books were written in this manner. I found it refreshing. You don't have to agree with the theory, I do.

It still applies today. Very good book to understand taxation.
Best book ever on how taxes can cripple or grow an economy on how they are handled. Can't build up the weak by bringing down the strong.
