Leslie Carbone is the author of
Slaying Leviathan: The Moral Case for Tax Reform (forthcoming), which explains the moral and economic arguments for fundamental tax reform. Arguing that
so-called progressive taxation runs afoul of both
natural order and constitutional justice, Ms. Carbone’s book explores how the modern U.S. tax code is rife with perverse incentives, overturns the natural rewards of virtue, and erodes moral freedom. She envisions a new approach to taxation rooted in natural justice.
An alternative voice on women’s issues, Ms. Carbone
has written in depth about the impact of feminism on culture, from college campuses to child care policy.
Her writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal,
The New York Times, and The Los Angeles Times. She has appeared on more than 200 radio and television talk
shows and lectured at more than 100 campuses across
the United States and in Canada, including
Northwestern University, UCLA, and Cornell University.
Ms. Carbone has served as Executive Director of
Accuracy In Academia, Chief-of-Staff to California
former Assemblyman Gil Ferguson, and Director of
Family Tax Policy at Family Research Council. She holds
a Bachelor of Science degree from The American University School of Public Affairs.
