A winning presidential platform? Yeah right. Planet Money interviewed several left, right, center economists and made a list of six policy proposals on which they could all agree. Food for thought.
1. Eliminate mortgage interest deduction
2. Tax employer-provided health care
3. Eliminate corporate income tax
4. Eliminate all income, payroll tax. Replace with progressive consumption tax.
5. Tax carbon emissions, including gasoline.
6. Legalize marijuana
