Tax & Economic Growth

The Tax and Economic Growth program examines fiscal and taxation issues as they relate to growth, savings, innovation, productivity and competitiveness.

An important goal of the program is to provide objective, evidence-based assessments of the potential for reforming the way taxes are designed, applied and used. In addition, the program investigates the implications for economic growth of government financing decisions, particularly as they relate to deficits and debt accumulation. The program’s research, education and events are focused on encouraging more efficient, effective and competitive fiscal policies related to both businesses and individuals.
