Modeling Tax Changes – Which Help, Which Hurt, How Much?
This session will explain how the consequences of policy options can be determined and why they should guide the reform effort, and demonstrate the Tax Foundation’s Taxes and Growth Dynamic Tax Model.
It will discuss the benefits and limitations of dynamic versus static analysis and scoring of tax changes, explore which tax features harm growth the most, and which potential reforms help the most and which revenue offsets hurt the least.
It will present differing views of how to predict the effects of tax changes on economic growth, how different models view the effect of the federal budget deficit and the Federal Reserve on the outcomes, and the proper role of monetary policy.
Lunch will be provided in the form of Chick-fil-A.
