More proof of the benefits of taxing land

Why do Danes report “unrivalled satisfaction with life?”  Well, of course there was a research project to find out.  But it seems the scientists didn’t examine the tax system, so of course they didn’t realize that Denmark has something of a land tax (though not nearly so much as formerly), which most other countries lack.  Too bad, since it is so obvious. (Thanks to boingboing, who got it from the NY Times.)
