The Office of Tax Policy Research at the University of Michigan, the Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee and the Department of Economics at the University of Georgia have commissioned leading academic economists and accountants to study competition in subnational governments and urban areas, and present their findings in an open conference to be held on April 25 and April 26, 2014 at the University of Tennessee. Competition will be studied in three highly complementary modules: (1) fiscal (tax) competition, (2) competition in urban areas, and (3) competition in education.
All conference activities will be held at the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy located on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville campus. The address is:
