THE PROPOSED SOCIALIST SURTAX
[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.]
SIR,—You say, " Professor Bowley and Sir Josiah Stamp !rive calculated, if our memory does not mislead us, that if the excess income of those families which have more than £500 a year were distributed among families which have less, the benefiting families would get only an increase of 5s. a week."
As far as Sir J. Stamp, at least, is concerned, yours is an understatement. His figure is not £500, but £250. See
Wealth and Taxable Capacity, p. am, Sir, &c.,
