Seminars at Steamboat series wraps up Tuesday
The Seminars at Steamboat speaker series wraps up Tuesday with a discussion about tax reform with economists Martin Feldstein and William Gale.
Feldstein is a professor of economics at Harvard University and is a former director of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Ronald Regan.
"Any serious plan to reduce government spending that is built into tax law should raise more revenue and call on most taxpayers to participate," according to Feldstein.
Gale is chairman of Federal Economic Policy in the Economic Studies Program at the Brookings Institution.
"Reforms include broadening the income tax base, establishing a consumption tax, and bringing carbon taxation in line with the modern economy," Gale said.
The discussion between the two will be moderated by Isabel Sawhill, a senior fellow at Brookings and a founder of Seminars at Steamboat.
The free seminar will be held at 5 p.m. at the Strings Music Pavilion, 900 Strings Road. Tickets will be distributed at 4:15 p.m.
