Page updated Feb 16, 2012

Event Details

Presentation material for Prof. John Diamond's lecture 'The Dynamic Economic Effects of a US Corporate Income Tax Rate Reduction', presented at Treasury on Thursday 8 December 2011.

The US corporate income tax system has not changed significantly since 1986, while most other countries have dramatically reduced their statutory corporate income tax rates below the US rate. This paper analyzes the dynamic macroeconomic effects of a reduction in the US corporate tax rate financed in a revenue neutral manner through business tax base broadening.
