Back to the future

The Tax Policy Center also enters the 20th century (only 50 or 60 years late);
...until now, TPC assumed investors ultimately paid the entire corporate tax in the form of lower returns to capital. Now, TPC concludes that labor also pays through lower wages. As a result, workers, as well as shareholders and other owners of capital, would benefit from any cut in the corporate tax. Similarly, both would take a hit if corporate taxes are hiked.
Got it.  Corporations are people too.
