New! From an academic, non-partisan approach, explore a brief history of federal tax policy changes (almost always cuts), up through the most recent 2017 “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act”, as well as arguments used to support them. Review economic consequences in terms of economic growth, the federal budget deficit, effects on different segments of the population, wages, business investment, and future generations. On the 2nd night focus on the 2017 Act itself, including details, arguments made by the Republican majority in support of the bill, impacts so far on the federal budget deficit, job growth/unemployment, wages, and state taxes. Get into the “forensics” or evolving effects of the 2017 Act – the what and how to measure –with respect to its stated objectives and potential future impacts.
