@ Brookings Podcast: Extending the Bush-Era Tax Cuts

September 17, 2010

Debate is raging in Congress over whether to extend the Bush-era tax cuts. Adam Looney sees the debate as opportunity to start bringing the deficit back under control.

In this week’s @ Brookings podcast, Adam Looney, senior fellow and policy director of the Hamilton Project, addresses the merits of allowing some of the Bush-era tax cuts to expire and begin reducing the deficit, or whether extending the cuts to potentially stimulate the economy is the better course. He also looks at the long- and short-term consequences for the overall economy.
