Whether they consider themselves disciples of Milton Friedman, Libertarians a la Murray Rothbard, or supporters of Thomas Piketty, economists of all confessions have come to agree on one thing; the United States urgently needs a comprehensive tax overhaul. The problem however, is how.

Should taxes attempt to achieve social justice, maximize government revenue or be as little disruptive to entreprise as possible?

In this seminar, Tom Ballou will shed light on possible directions of the US tax policy and ask whether the Trump Tax plan will change America for the better or worse.

Location: Henry George School of Social Science, 149 East 38th Street (Between Lexington & 3rd Avenue) New York, NY 10016
Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm

    This talk continues our analysis of macroeconomics begun in January with our lecture “The Fed Has Lost Control of the Money Supply.” Just as the previous talk explored emergent properties in the Fed’s management of the money supply which were evident to a Semantic Analyst but were not otherwise perceived by conventional macroeconomics, this talk will focus on similar emergent properties of the Fed’s efforts to control unemployment.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.

    Instructor: Dr. W. E. Perry
