Veronique de Rugy on the TRUE source of the Gender Pay Gap

Veronique de Rugy, an economist and scholar with the Mercatus Institute has concluded from the data that most of the gap disappears when you account for the kinds of jobs men and women work, their education and skill levels, and the number of hours worked. Single women with no children, for example, earn more than men. Whatever discrepancy may have existed due to discrimination has already been eliminated. The “Battle of Sexes” is over, and women won.

She joins me to discuss the true source of the infamous 79 cents statistic.

Veronique de Rugy Tells the Truth about Taxes & Entitlements

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg recently declared that he was "cool" with the idea of paying more income taxes. On its face, this might seem like a good idea. Raising the top income tax rate seems like an effective way to make our (already progressive) federal tax system more progressive. Yet as Reason columnist and Mercatus Center economist Veronique de Rugy explains in her weekly appearance on Bloomberg TV, the rationale underlying this policy recommendation ignores the complexities of the United States federal tax system.
