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.

    In this webinar, Pr. Louis Philippe Rochon takes a fresh look at the links between monetary policy, asset bubbles and inequality.

    It is often argued that asset inflation and real estate bubbles are the result of accommodative monetary policy: low interest rates encourages borrowing for speculative purposes.

    Undoubtedly, this has been the case as an increasing part of borrowing is not meant for productive purposes.

    In this webinar, Prof. Rochon will argue that this is a misreading of the facts. Rather than laying the blame at the feet of low interest rates, bubbles may be caused by growing inequality as well as by the excessive deregulation.

    Learn why governments need to re-regulate borrowing and, introduce such policies as financial transaction taxes to prevent asset inflation and specifically real estate bubbles.
