This timely discussion will take place in anticipation of the U.N. Climate Summit on September 23 and in the wake of the Obama administration’s finding that ignoring climate change could cost the United States $150 billion per year.
September 23, 2014, 10:00am ET - 11:30am ETTax reform appears stalled for now—a victim of the same political gridlock hindering action on a wide range of issues. But, politics aside, there is actually substantial agreement among tax policymakers on how to improve the tax code. A new report from the Center for American Progress identifies common principles of good tax policy that leaders on the right and left support, as well as more than 20 specific bipartisan tax reform proposals worth more than $1 trillion over a decade. Using this report as a starting point, this event will convene tax and economic policy experts from diverse perspectives to discuss how to improve our tax code in a bipartisan manner.
