"Can A Tax Plan Save Baseball?" (with Sharon M. Oster), For The Record, December 1994/ January 1995, 9.Paper: pdf file
EDITOR'S NOTE: On August 8, 1994, the authors had circulated a wage-tax proposal to Major League Baseball players and owners that could serve as a compromise in order to settle the baseball strike. This article is based on that wage-tax proposal.
Sharon and I like to think that our August 8, 1994, letter was the impetus for the luxury tax idea and the subsequent end of the baseball strike.
