Inequality in Good Times and Bad

June 11, 2020
7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
WEBINAR

Economic inequality is a central theme in the Presidential campaign. Progressives have proposed that one way to reduce inequality is with a tax on the accumulated wealth of the richest Americans, yet an influential theory in economics, endorsed by the right, argues that the ideal tax on wealth is zero. Is a wealth tax a good idea, a bad idea, or both?

Organized by the Network for Responsible Public Policy.
