Fierce debate over the proper economic role, most efficient system—and fairness—of taxation will dominate the political landscape of 2012, from the presidential campaign trail to the looming end-of-year Congressional budget crisis. In partnership with the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the Americans for Democratic Action Education Fund will present an all-star panel on tax reform, featuring the nation’s leading advocates for a tax system that adequately funds public needs and truly reflects American values. CEPR Co-Director Dean Baker participated. Other panelists included Elspeth Gilmore of Resource Generation, Mike Lapham of the Responsible Wealth campaign and United for a Fair Economy, Chuck Marr of the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, Robert McIntyre of Citizens for Tax Justice; and Rebecca Thiess of the Economic Policy Institute. The event was streamed live here.
