Probability range for oil windfall tax in U.S. vs Canada


Recommended Posts

What do folks think is the risk of oil windfall tax in U.S. vs. Canada?

 

Democrats have proposed windfall tax on profits above $66 per barrel. See https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/7061 .

 

Windfall Profit Tax on Domestic Crude Oil was passed back in 1980 also.  See https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/STATUTE-94/pdf/STATUTE-94-Pg229.pdf#page=1 .

 

What do folks think is the likely probability range it will get passed again this time in the U.S.?  Any likelihood of it getting passed in Canada?

I believe every sponsor of that bill is a member of the Progressive Caucus.  So, it's really the Progressive Caucus, rather than Democratic leadership, that has proposed that bill. 

 

I think the probability range of a windfall profits tax in the US is low.

Liberals are basically the confidence termites of the American system. There’s nothing they won’t hollow out and destroy. $6 a gallon gas is great cuz, well, you should be driving an EV anyway. And it’s an excuse to nationalize big oil profits.
