Tutor in Philosophy and Political Economy, University of Oxford

Political philosophy and public policy tutor/writer/researcher. Creator/advocate of Hourly Averaging and the CLIPH-rate tax, which are presented in my book Rethinking Taxation (Searching Finance, 2014). My academic background is in political philosophy and I am keen to apply principles of justice to the tax and benefit systems. I am also interested in how new technology can change the economic system.

I received my PhD in political philosophy at the University of Warwick in 2013. It was entitled "Egalitarian taxation: Equality of resources, market luck, and leisure." I am also the author of several papers which have appeared in journals including the Journal of Applied Philosophy and Moral Philosophy and Politics. I blog at Doug Bamford's Tax Appeal.
