Off to Toronto tomorrow, just for a few hours with no overnight, to give a dinner talk at a Tax Policy Research Symposium in Toronto, featuring many of the leading tax academics north of the border. Alas, no dinner for me, as I'll have to fly home immediately afterward to attend a son's middle school graduation on Friday.
It certainly poses extra challenges to be a before-dinner rather than after-dinner speaker, as this is bound to affect the audience's mood as I speak. ("Isn't he done yet? I'm hungry.")
The slides I'm planning to use for my talk, entitled "Three False Statements Concerning International Tax Policy," are available here.
