"Distributional Analysis of Tax Policy: Theory and Practice"

Measuring the distributional effects of tax policy--both current tax laws and proposed changes--is an important piece of the policy making process. Joe will discuss both theoretical and practical issues surrounding distributional analysis, including the definition of income, measurement of tax burdens, and tax incidence. 

Joseph Rosenberg is a Senior Research Associate at the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center. His research focuses primarily on issues of federal taxation, including business and corporate taxation, broad-based consumption taxes, tax expenditures, and tax incentives for charitable giving. He also develops and maintains the TPC’s microsimulation model of the federal tax system, which is regularly used to produce analyses of the revenue and distributional impacts of federal tax policy that are broadly cited by policymakers and the press. Prior to joining the Tax Policy Center, he was a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the University of California at Berkeley. He has also worked at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in Washington, DC.
