Tax Policy

The aim of this course is to explore the fundamental social, economic, and political forces that drive tax policy. Building on the concepts developed in the introductory federal income tax class, this course will combine a comparative-historical perspective on taxation with a more conventional political, economic, and legal analysis of public finance issues. We will explore such salient topics as the ideal tax base, the tax legislative process, progressivity, and how comparative-historical analysis can help us understand U.S. tax law and policy.
