Rating: 5 stars  

CSE has been the world leader in helping local governments to be a practical help to its community through constuctive tax policy reform. Most local governments tax the wrong people for the wrong reasons; by following the advice of CSE they can limit the harm and expand the good that they do for the community as a whole. What Milton Freidman called the "least bad of all taxes" not only funds local government, but it actually influences investors to help out the community with additional investment.
