April Round Table: Is There Such a Thing As a Bad Tax Cut?
Economists are proposing dozens of different methods of cutting taxes … which will have the greatest impact on the economy and on personal liberty?
Conservatives and libertarians usually agree that lower taxes lead to more productive economic growth, and that the current system needlessly over taxes both businesses and individuals. In this time of economic turmoil, there is talk of both increasing taxes for the wealthy and decreasing taxes for the lower- and middle-classes. Democrats and Republicans alike are now calling for tax cuts in some form, whether they be supply or demand sides; economists have proposed myriad plans. Which ones would work? Which wouldn’t? Is there such a thing as a bad tax cut?
Join us April 15th as we discuss several tax plans, and debate their individual merits and faults. Panelists will include Joseph Henchman of the Tax Foundation, Jonathan Williams of ALEC and John Lieber, formerly with the White House Economics Council. J.P. Freire, managing editor of The American Spectator, will moderate.
AFF Roundtables take place at The Fund for American Studies, 1706 New Hampshire Ave. NW. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres begin at 6:30 p.m., with the talk beginning at 7. Roundtables are free for members, and $5 for non-members—so join today! Please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org.
