Kevin Hassett’s Remarks on Tax Reform
October 5, 2017
This morning, we were pleased to cohost an event with the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center which featured the first public address by the new Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett.
Mr. Hassett outlined how the key elements of the tax reform Framework would boost wages and economic growth while making the U.S. more competitive. Based on his extensive understanding of the economic literature, he outlined the magnitude of the changes in GDP and wage growth that could reasonably be expected over the next few years.
Below, we have included a copy of the speech and a link to a full recording of the event. We hope people find Mr. Hassett’s remarks as interesting as we did.
