Listen: Forbes, Steve, Kate Delaney discussed on America Tonight with Kate Delaney
"Welcome to Forbes books at bedtime with Kate Delaney in Griggs, Devon. So thrilled to welcome to Forbes books at bedtime. Steve. Does he need an introduction? Are you kidding? I have to tell them this right at the start one of the first magazine, Steve. When I was a kid. You talked about your father did to teach you about business will what my grandfather did was he handed me Forbes magazine when I was about eight years old so thrilled to have you on with us. Oh, good to be with you. Glad you had such a wise grandfather. And obviously reading Forbes you look like a very bright person. Thank you. I will vote for her as well. Yes. Thank you very much. So I heard you speak today. And we were talking about what's on everybody's mind. Of course, the tax Bill, and you talked about how arduous it was so many pages, etc. Central? But you also talked about that this is a good first step, and I'm kind of taking a shortcut here in paraphrasing. What you said, but explain that to the listeners. Well, it looks like the proverbial making of the sausage not very edifying sight. But the Bill overall does more good than harm finally gets our tax rates on businesses back to where the rest of the world is which will make us very competitive again. Get more investment recyc- at a higher standard of living on the personal side. They could have done it better. I think they will in a couple of years. I see this as a down payment, not the be all end all on the tax bills. So see it as the first step of many to come always you've been a big advocate for flat tax. And I have to say read so much listened to you speak about it. And you. You've certainly converted me. Do you think we will ever see a flat tax? I think several years the answer is. Yes, this is it becomes clear that this current tax code just gets more and more complex more and more corrupt more and more of a burden on people and the people see when you reduce the burden not only of the tax rates themselves. But also the compliance costs. They'll say we should have done this a long time ago. Are there things we should."
