The Atlanta Journal-Constitution quotes Professor Joseph Bankman in a story about efforts to increase the tax rate for fund managers:

"Why should fund managers get a lower tax rate than executives or scientists?" asked Stanford Law School professor Joseph Bankman. "A basic and common-sense rule of tax policy is that we ought to have the same rate of tax apply across different occupations."
