Corporate tax reform talk

Today at 12:30 in Greenberg Lounge at NYU Law School, I will be participating in a panel discussion (with Deborah Schenk, Reuven Avi-Yonah, and Deborah Paul), of Reuven's recent co-authored paper, "The Case for Dividend Deduction." Reuven argues here for achieving corporate integration by making corporate dividends deductible at the entity level (and fully taxable to shareholders if they are U.S. taxpayers).

I do not entirely agree with the analysis or conclusions, for reasons that I'll explain. I actually wrote out my remarks in full, including some broader observations about corporate tax reform, so that I would be able to post them here after the session. I'll try to do that this afternoon.
