The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: A Boost to Growth or a Missed Opportunity?
Nearly everyone agrees that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) was the most consequential tax bill in decades, but there is little agreement on its merits. Proponents claim it will substantially boost business investment and economic growth. Opponents claim it will raise the level of federal debt and is poorly designed to stimulate new private-sector investment. Almost five months into the new year, how do the predictions made last fall about the TCJA’s effects look? And how can Congress improve the tax code to promote economic growth? Join the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the Kellogg School of Management for an in-depth discussion about the early evidence on economic growth and the prospects for growth from the new law.
