8. Dividends and Capital Gains

You tax the shareholders on their share of the profits, which come in the form of dividends and capital gains. We already do that, but we put low tax rates on those items to avoid "double taxation". I think we went the wrong direction by resolving that through cutting the shareholder tax rates. We should have kept them in place and eliminated the corporate side.
