This was made as a comment to the TED Talk by Nick Hanauer in March 2012 at Long Beach, CA.

It's not clear if TED pulled this talk or just hasn't published it yet.

When I went to insert the Plot of the Laffer Curve from the Wiki page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laffer_c...
I found a new paper:
How Far Are We From The Slippery Slope? The Laffer Curve Revisited

that suggests the optimum rate is 70%.

In any case, today (2012) we are at the far left of the curve and so, using Reagan's method of the Laffer Curve, we should be raising taxes.
