The next president of the United States will face immediate challenges addressing the nation’s tax and economic uncertainties. On April 7, the Tax Policy Center will host a conversation with Douglas Holtz-Eakin, senior economic policy advisor for Senator John McCain’s presidential campaign. Dr. Holtz-Eakin will discuss Sen. McCain’s agenda and its effects on the economy, the distribution of tax burdens, and federal finances. He will respond to questions from moderator Howard Gleckman, editor of TPC’s blog, TaxVox, and from the audience.

Dr. Holtz-Eakin was most recently a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. From 2003 through 2005, he served as the director of the Congressional Budget Office. Dr. Holtz-Eakin was the chief economist on President Bush’s Council of Economic Advisers and a senior staff economist on the council under President George H. W. Bush. He has held academic appointments at Columbia and Princeton universities and was the economics department chair, a trustee professor of economics, and the associate director of the Maxwell Center for Policy Research at Syracuse University. Dr. Holtz-Eakin received the 2006 Morris and Edna Zale Award for Outstanding Achievement in Policy Research and Public Service.
