Full circle

Okay. I went back to Wolfgang Streeck's post, the one we looked at yesterday: How Will Capitalism End?. I was looking at his graphs, Figures 5 and 6. Total tax revenue as a percent of GDP... and Top marginal income tax rates. Went to FRED and came up with this, which I thought was interesting:

Graph #1, from FRED: The Tithe

Then I Googled tax rate historical graph to find something relevant to my FRED graph. Found this one:

Graph #2 from Ritholtz via the Hipcrime Vocab

The Google Image "visit page" button brought me to the Hipcrime Vocab. Interesting site. Funny thing is, Hipcrime's three most recent posts bring us right back to Wolfgang Streeck's topic.
