Gamage Presents What Constitutes a "Tax Cut" or a "Tax Hike"? Today at Texas

TexasGamageDavid 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.

Comments

I'm continually amazed at Paul's ability to find out about talks and new papers.

If anyone actually downloads the paper, please realize that my talk is for Texas's Drawing Board Series. The goal of the Series is to present *early* stage works in progress, so as to solicit feedback while a project is still being formulated. As such, my paper should be read as a project I plan to work on over this spring and summer, not as an analysis that is anywhere near to being complete.

With that said, if any of you actually do read the paper, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
