Principles of Tax Reform

Apr 19, 2011
Rayburn H.O.B. B-340

Event Speakers

Jason J. Fichtner

Former Senior Research Fellow

Join the Mercatus Center and Dr. Jason Fichtner for a discussion on fundamental tax reform:

The U.S. tax code is almost 17,000 pages long. It’s dense, technical, and complex. The U.S. tax code is, in a word, broken. However, reform is easier than one might think. There are simple, clear, and non-partisan principles for tax reform. This incredibly complex system doesn’t need to remain a weight around our economy’s neck.

Dr. Fichtner will walk through the principles of a sound tax system, and provide an easily workable framework for evaluating the various taxation proposals.

This Capitol Hill Campus event is free and open to all federal agency, Congressional, and Library of Congress staff members. Due to space constraints, please no interns without prior approval. Lunch will be served.
