Richard Musgrave was a towering international figure in the history of public finance in the second half of the 20th century. The papers in this issue of Australian Tax Forum derive from a colloquium organised to honour his memory by acknowledging his important contribution to the analysis of the effects of income taxation and loss-offsets on incentives to take risk, a contribution which dates back to his early joint paper with Domar in 1944.
John works for the Taxation Law and Policy Research Institute at Monash University.
