The 45th president of the United States, regardless of who wins the election, is expected to pursue corporate tax reform in their first one hundred days. But this alone won't be enough to tackle the nation's biggest economic challenges including crumbling infrastructure, crippling student debt, stubbornly high income inequality and climate change.

On November 17, find out what a genuinely comprehensive tax reform and progressive fiscal policy could look like in the next White House from leading experts and policy-makers including Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chair, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and House Ways and Means Ranking Democratic leader, Rep. Sandy Levin (D-MI).
