"Tax Hikes, Tax Expenditures, Tax Reform -- What a Mess" 

The debt ceiling debate has accelerated debate about tax policy to an extent not seen in years.  This has revealed some useful tendencies and some hopeful trends.  Among this is a much greater appetite for substantial tax reform.  The recent debate has also brought to the fore once again some basic structural flaws in the analytical structures that tend to guide tax reform.  If the building consensus toward tax reform is to succeed, the principles of tax reform need to be as clear as the tools are as sound.  There's a lot of work to do. 

Note:  Registration is open through Wednesday, 7-27-11.  Anyone desiring to attend after this date will just walk in at the door, but cannot be guaranteed the lunch will be available.  (Please wait to check in until all prepaid or reserved people have checked in for seating)

Press:  Please email :info@national-economists.org with your attendance status and the date of attendance. It will be assumed that lunch is NOT requested.   If lunch is requested, please contact me in advance, prior to the date of the event, for registration and payment instructions.
Credit Card payment is non refundable but you may substitute someone in your place for attendance.
