The NBER Reporter 2013 Number 3: Books
Tax Policy and the Economy, Volume 27, edited by Jeffrey R. Brown is available from the University of Chicago Press in October 2013.
Taxation policy was a central part of the policy debates over the "fiscal cliff." Given the importance of fiscal issues, careful empirical research can help inform the policy dialogue. In keeping with the NBER's tradition of carrying out rigorous but policy-relevant research, this volume offers insights on a number of key tax policy questions. It features six papers by leading scholars who examine the tax treatment of tuition at private K-12 schools; the potential streamlining of the federal rules for post-secondary financial aid and the use of tax return information in this process; the effect of tax and benefit programs on incentives to work; the macroeconomic effects of fiscal adjustments; and the set of factors that contributed to the weakening U.S. fiscal outlook in the last decade.
Jeffrey R. Brown is a Research Associate in the NBER's Programs on Aging and Public Economics and the William G. Karnes Professor of Finance at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The price of this volume is $60.00 for a clothbound volume.
