Tackling Tax Policy with Joel Slemrod :: Video
In 'Ask M' video series, Michigan Ross professor revisits Reaganomics and laments lack of plans by 2012 presidential candidates.
ANN ARBOR, Mich.— Would Reaganomics work now? Should we move to a single, national sales tax? Should we expect any bipartisanship in addressing the national debt? Michigan Ross professor Joel Slemrod dives into these tax policy questions, and more, in the University's "Ask M" series. In this video, Slemrod, also chairman of the Department of Economics, provides insight on the long-term fiscal imbalance and the relative silence on the issue from presidential candidates. Slemrod, a former senior staff economist for the President's Council of Economic Advisers, is a leading expert on taxes and tax policy. He is co-author of the book Taxing Ourselves: A Citizen's Guide to the Great Debate over Tax Reform.
