The Tax Policy Center will hold a panel discussion on proposals for economic stimulus. Some of Washington's top fiscal policy experts will answer these and other questions:

  • Is fiscal stimulus warranted and likely to be effective?
  • What role, if any, should tax cuts for individuals play?
  • How do corporate tax cuts fit into a package?
  • Should assistance to state and local governments be included?

Panelists will include:

  • Nada Eissa, Associate Professor, Georgetown University, Visiting Fellow, Tax Policy Center
  • Doug Elmendorf, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution
  • Doug Holtz-Eakin, former Director, Congressional Budget Office Economic adviser, McCain for President
  • Kim Rueben, Senior Research Associate, Tax Policy Center
  • Moderator: Howard Gleckman, Senior Research Associate, Tax Policy Center Editor, TaxVox

A light breakfast will be served.
