Can anyone tell me what this is supposed to mean


[Q]The evident justice and utility of the foregoing maxims have recommended them more or less to the attention of all nations. All nations have endeavoured, to the best of their judgment, to render their taxes as equal as they could contrive; as certain, as convenient to the contributor, both in the time and in the mode of payment, and, in proportion to the revenue which they brought to the prince, as little burdensome to the people. The following short review of some of the principal taxes which have taken place in different ages and countries will show that the endeavours of all nations have not in this respect been equally successful.

Adam Smith
An Inquiry into the Nature And Causes of the Wealth of Nations 1776
Book Five Chapter II Part 2 [/Q]

I need to show if the current tax system is successful in light of this quote

I also need to find academic references

So far i know that it is related to the tax principles of

Equitable
Certain
Convenient
Economically Efficient

But if anyone could point me in the right direction it would be fantastic

Basically it wants you to evaluate (give arguments for and against) the current tax system with the points in the quote as a guideline. You need to argue whether or not the tax principles you mention are being met giving evidence (references from academic sources) for and against for each principle.

Thats my take on the question anyway. Better to ask your tutor/teacher if you are not sure.
