Tax Reform in the Age of Trump

Professor Edward McCaffery

Tax reform is a key priority of the Trump Administration and is once again near the top of Congress’s legislative agenda. This lecture will examine the main proposals that have been floated thus far, including an assessment of their pros and cons and their likely winners and losers. Professor McCaffery will also outline his own intriguing proposal for a progressive consumption tax (a “fair not flat tax”) that would tax spending rather than income and would replace the existing federal income and estate tax regimes.

Instructor: Edward McCaffery is the former Dean and currently Robert C. Packard Trustee Chair in Law and Professor of Law, Economics, and Political Science at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. An internationally recognized expert in tax law, McCaffery studies tax policy, tax structures, and public-finance theory. He is the author of several books, including Taxing Women and Fair Not Flat: How to Make the Tax System Better and Simpler.
