The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, in collaboration with the Kellogg Public-Private Initiative of Evanston, Illinois, presents “@Issue: Making Sense of Fiscal Chaos.”
The Tax Policy Center’s Donald Marron and Eugene Steuerle will join Ben Harris and Jan Eberly from Northwestern University in a panel conversation about the trifecta of fiscal uncertainty that looms on the horizon this fall: possible government shutdown, the threat of default because of the debt ceiling, and an unknown course for tax reform. Congress recently passed a 10-week, short-term extension of government funding and debt ceiling relief, so there is now a common deadline in early December. This deadline, coupled with the promise of major tax reform, puts fiscal issues at the forefront of this fall’s business and policy agenda. Marron and Steuerle will be joined by join Ben Harris and Jan Eberly of Northwestern University to discuss the prospects for the fiscal landscape, focusing on potential resolutions and impact on the economy.
