Here’s the presentation I gave at the National Press Club on June 17, 2013. The event was called “Smart Tax Reform and International Trade Competitiveness”. Michael Graetz, tax law professor at Columbia University School of Law, discussed ways to implement a U.S. value added tax and decrease income taxes across the board. The result is distributionally neutral and revenue neutral while broadening the tax base.
I discussed the trade impact of foreign VATs and ways to neutralize them.
