Virtual Event

Event Summary

Tax competition across countries has allowed large corporations to play jurisdictions off against each other, minimizing global taxation of capital and exacerbating concerns about inequality. Has the political landscape shifted enough to make global agreement on real policy change possible? What tax reforms would be needed in the United States and elsewhere?

Joining this episode of Global Connections were:


Caroline Atkinson
Senior Advisor, RockCreek and PIIE Executive Committee member


Kimberly Clausing
Professor of Tax Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law

Jason Furman
Professor of Practice, Harvard University and Nonresident Senior Fellow, PIIE


Global Connections is a monthly virtual event series hosted by Caroline Atkinson that explores new global thinking on macroeconomic policy goals and tools to achieve broad-based, sustainable and equitable increases in living standards. Accumulated stress from a decade of sub-par growth, unequally distributed, has led to political division within countries and across borders. How should international economic policy respond?
