The 2013 NYU Tax Policy Colloquium, which I will be co-leading with Bill Gale, starts next Tuesday, Jan 22, at 4 pm in NYU Law School (Vanderbilt Hall, room 208). The first paper, which we'll discuss on that date, is "Are We There Yet?: On a Path to Closing America's Long-Run Deficit," by my NYU colleague David Kamin. Peter Orszag will also be there, as a guest commentator.
The website for the Tax Policy Colloquium is here. The Kamin paper is available for download if you scroll down the page a bit, and other papers for later weeks should be posted fairly soon.
We will probably have dinner slots available after the session. The dinner will be at Lupa, a very nice nearby place, and anyone attending the session is welcome to sign up if we still have slots (the dinner group is capped at 8).
In other news of specialized interest, people who are planning to use the Bankman-Shaviro-Stark casebook, "Federal Income Taxation," this semester should know that we will have a brief update available shortly, covering the most important changes, for Tax I purposes, that were made by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.
