I've been remiss in not flogging this earlier - focusing on my current writing project - but tomorrow morning I'll be participating in a very interesting international tax policy conference with a number of outstanding participants. It's on Zoom, and is free, so anyone anywhere can watch whatever parts of it they like, subject only to having a computer or smartphone.
Sponsored by the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the UNC Tax Center, it's called Responding to Income-Shifting by Multinational Corporations, and the link for it is here. You can register for it here.
Here is the agenda (all times are EST):
9:30 a.m. Welcome and Introduction: Mark Mazur, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center
9:35 a.m. Keynote Address
• Pascal Saint-Amans, OECD
9:50 a.m. Audience Q&A
10:00 a.m. Panel I. How Big a Problem is Income Shifting?:

11:45 a.m. Audience Q&A
12:00 p.m. Event Concludes
I'm actually the second speaker on Panel II (although we're listed above alphabetically), so I will be speaking from roughly 11:08 to 11:15. I'm planning to discuss the OECD's Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 initiatives, although what exactly I'll say remains somewhat flexible pending the keynote address, which may offer updates (at least to me) that are of interest.
