Seminar co-sponsored with Brookings Institution
March 15, 2013
The ITPF and Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center hosted a conference to assess the current state of U.S. manufacturing, its contribution to U.S. economic growth, and whether tax reform should maintain, deepen, or eliminate preferential income tax treatment of manufacturing income.
Brookings Co-Director of the Tax Policy Center William Gale gave introductory remarks and moderated the first panel with Brookings Director of the Initiative on Business and Public Policy Martin Baily, and Tax Policy Center Director Donald Marron served as a panelist. Former member of the Council of Economic Advisers Laura DAndrea Tyson delivered the keynote address. After each panel, speakers fielded questions from the audience.For conference materials, go here.
