Shaviro: Evaluating the New US Pass-Through Rules

Daniel Shaviro has made available for download his paper, “Evaluating the New US Pass-Through Rules,” published in the British Tax Review, Issue 1, 2018
NYU Law and Economics Research Paper No. 18-08.  The Abstract is as follows:

It lacked any coherent (or even clearly articulated) underlying principle, was shoddily executed, and ought to be promptly repealed. Given the broader surrounding circumstances, the mere fact of its enactment sends out a disturbing message about disregard among high-ranking US policymakers for basic principles of competence, transparency, and fair governance.
