Paying for progress: A tax reform agenda for the next president

Date: November 17, 2016

The next president of the United States, regardless of who wins the election, is expected to pursue corporate tax reform in their first one hundred days. But this alone won’t be enough to tackle the nation’s biggest economic challenges: stagnant wages, crumbling infrastructure, high income inequality, climate change, and more.

Join the Economic Policy Institute and the Century Foundation’s Bernard L. Schwartz Rediscovering Government Initiative on November 16th to discuss comprehensive tax reform and progressive fiscal policy with the nation’s leading experts and policymakers including Reps. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Sander Levin (D-MI) and EPI’s Josh Bivens.
