Videos: Taxes Made Easier…

Are you sick of taxes yet??? I meant the videos, not, well, actual taxes…

The first two videos show how to show a tax on a supply and demand diagram without shifting any curves- this approach is much more convenient than the explicit tax on producers or consumers setups that I showed before, and it’s going to serve us well when we start playing around with the tax diagrams.

The second two videos go through some general rules about taxes- if you understand the tax model, these rules shouldn’t require memorization, since you can easily derive them when you need them, but it’s still helpful to have a few overall points to remember. (Also, these videos are helpful even if you can’t be bothered with the explicit tax models from before.)

See here for the Micro 101 videos page, or here for econgirl’s YouTube channel.

    Nice videos. I’m definitely going to send a link to a few young econ majors I know.

    And here’s a real work tax scenario!

    Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other
    sites? I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would love to
    have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your
    work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.
