Freakonomics deals with tax

In a recent WSJ article, Filling in the Tax Gap, the authors of the book Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything (Stephen J. Dubner & Steven D. Levitt) discuss what makes people comply with the tax law and what measures can deter tax cheating. I read the book (which I personally recommend) and I found this article a nice continuation of the type of approach used in this “unconventional” book.

In addition, the authors provide bonus material on the Freakonomics website, for the ones that want to explore the “dark-side” of the argumentations used in their articles.
