On Wednesday, January 29, from 9 to 10:30 am, the American Enterprise Institute will be hosting an event called "Corporate Tax Reform: Where to From Here?" Alan Viard will be the moderator, and I am one of the three speakers, along with Marty Sullivan and Laura D'Andrea Tyson.
The event description reads as follows: "Economists often condemn the inefficiency and complexity of the US
corporate income tax, and politicians on both sides of the aisle
advocate reform. Yet the US corporate tax code has remained largely
unchanged for decades. Has the time come for reform? What would an ideal
corporate income tax look like?"
This is meant to be open-ended, however, and I will talk more about the muddle of the existing system and the dilemmas that it confronts us with. I've prepared PowerPoint slides, entitled "Stand-Alone Corporate Tax Reform?," that I plan to post after the event.
