David S. Gamage (Texas) presents What Constitutes a "Tax Cut" or a "Tax Hike"? at Texas today as part of its Faculty Colloquia Series. Here is part of the outline:
This paper proposes the use of revenue intake as the baseline for most state-level income and sales taxes, and possibly for federal taxes as well. I plan to argue for this position on two levels. First, I hope to analyze which baseline better allocates the costs from policy risk and uncertainty. And second, I intend to consider which baseline is most compatible with the principles of representative democracy.
The workshop takes place in the Sheffield Room, Townes Hall 2.111, from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
