With U.S. tax reform now on the agenda, The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the International Tax Policy Forum will host three panels of public finance and trade experts to discuss the implications for international trade, investment, capital markets, and tax treaties. In an introductory presentation, Rosanne Altshuler, a senior economist on President Bush’s Advisory Panel on Federal Income Tax Reform, will describe the international aspects of the panel’s recommendations. Edward Lazear, a member of the president’s panel, will deliver a keynote address to highlight the implications of their recommendations for international investment in an open economy.
