NYU Hosts Forum Tomorrow On Taxing The Rich


NYU hosts a forum on Taxing the Rich: Is It a Problem? If So, What Can Be Done About It? tomorrow at 3:45 PM ET (registration):

ProPublica recently published a series of articles showing that many of the wealthiest Americans pay little or nothing in taxes. In some years, the series reported, the likes of Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Michael Bloomberg didn’t pay a penny in federal income tax. This pointedly raises the question of whether our approach to taxing the rich—particularly the superrich focused on by ProPublica—is right as a matter of fairness and revenue policy. Politicians and policymakers have put forth a number of proposals that would impose higher taxes on the wealthy. At this Forum, a panel of experts will unpack the issues underlying this situation and discuss the pros and cons of ideas put forth to address it.
