Rahn Curve

Video explaining Rahn curve

Rahn curve explained by Cato institute

To do:
In future will combine the Rahn curve and the laffer curve on one chart with Tax rate on the x-axis, Government revenue on the y-Axis and economy size on the second Y-axis.
Combined it will show the maximum tax rate for government revenue raising, and the maximum rate for prosperity.
The lower of the two should be the rate of tax is set at, unless prosperity goes up when the tax rate goes up.

Note that there are some weaknesses in this graph
  • The mix of tax collection, between individuals and businesses.
  • The mix of Government spending in investment and expenditure.
  • Estimations on the Laffer curve and Rahn curve
