The Dynamic Economic Effects of a US Corporate Income Tax Rate Reduction

Event series: 

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.
