I'm in an argument, and need your help. Well, except for Billie, who's the one I'm arguing with. We're arguing progressive vs. flat taxes, and I'm looking for research for and against the idea that $1 is worth more to a person with only $5 than $10 is worth to someone with $50. I've run across it in a number of avenues, and my own experience being broke and being flush back it up, but I'd like to see some concrete studies on the matter. Anybody got an recommendations? My studies of economics have been strictly informal, so there's a strong chance that there is a technical term for this principle that, if I knew it, would make things much, much easier. So that would be a help as well.
